#GETMOVING for YPMH Fund
MOVE with us to support Young People's Mental Health! The EMEA Talent Acquisition Team at VMware is #MOVING 20km in the 2 weeks from 27th June - 11th July to support YPMH on their pursuit to reduce the number of young people who experience mental health problems. "More young people than ever are suffering from depression. The condition has a huge and potentially devastating impact on them, their family and friends. It accounts for the largest share of the world’s burden of disease by years lost to disability, and it has a significant economic and wider social impact. Thus, it should be everybody’s business. Nonetheless, treatments have changed little in 30 years. Current treatments for depression in under-18s are effective in 60% of cases, and 50–75% experience a relapse, even after successful treatment. There is a clear and compelling need for a new way forward." (YPMH: Changing Hearts, Changing Minds, 2021) The William Templeton Foundation For Young People's Mental Health is working on closing the gap between new scientific research findings and often outdated practice or treatments by facilitating engagement between key groups and developments for the future. Exercise has been found to improve people's mental health and decrease stress so we want everyone to #GETMOVING, either alone or as a team. Interested in Participating? We would ask for a 5$ (or however much you can) donation as a sign up fee. Once you start #GETMOVING, get friends and family involved, track your kilometers and share your progress with everyone. MOVING can be anything from walking to running, cycling, swimming, paddleboarding, kayaking, you-name-it 20km in 2 weeks sounds like its impossible to do? Why not share the 20km and get together as a team? This way everyone can MOVE however much they feel like they are able to, and you can add up everyone’s kilometers at the end. If you have any questions or concerns don't hesitate to contact koriana@vmware.com and now... #GETMOVING!
