About

Silver Buck is running a half marathon! (Yes, you read that right). We couldn’t resist a bit of healthy competition, so we're picking up our running shoes to take part in the Ealing Half Marathon on 25th September, and hoping to raise some money for a very worthy cause in the process.

We’re passionate about using technology to transform healthcare in the UK, so we’ve chosen to raise money for Mental Health Innovations. They run Shout 8528 – a free confidential text-messaging service that saves lives, providing immediate mental health support to those in need. 

So far 1,270,000 text conversations have taken place through Shout, supported by 2,500 trained volunteers and 84 staff members across the UK and NZ. It was a vital service to many people reaching crisis point during the coronavirus lockdowns and they need funds to continue providing this life-saving support.

In addition to Shout, MHI has also partnered with Hive Learning to deliver a digital training programme that supports wellbeing in the workplace. You can find out out more about the work they do here: https://mentalhealthinnovations.org/

Don't forget to follow our progress on our social media accounts where we’ll post regular updates about our training: @SilverBuck_UK and LinkedIn
