Community Projects

At Mental Health Muscle we put our community engagement & interaction with people at the forefront of all the work we do. Raising awareness at a community level is vital. When families and individuals locally feel empowered to manage and understand mental health issues, the stigma is broken at a local level, which has a ripple effect nationally. Let’s start small and locally, together, and see how you can help your community!

Our events are a huge part of what we do in communities and they are usually made up of the following elements:

  • Educational Seminars on mental health related content
  • Fitness Activities & Competitions
  • Fundraising Challenges
  • Meet and Greet Zone with Special Guests
  • Local & International Exhibitors supporting Mental Health Muscle
  • Open Space to Interact, meet other individuals & share experiences and stories
  • Live Auctions & Raffles
  • Open Gym to Train
  • Refreshments from Local Businesses

We are proud to be active in the local community having been Runner Up at the Teignbridge Sports & Community Awards 2018 for Organisation Contribution to Sport & the Community. We facilitate a number of different projects and will continue to create more as and when we can.

Below are a just a handful of ongoing projects:
