In partnership with Blackburn BID member The Mall, we are delivering #BlackburnRocks for #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek, 10th to 17th May 2021.
The theme this year is nature, on the basis that nature is so central to our psychological and emotional health.
We are asking people (anyone and everyone who would like to) to paint a positive, uplifting message or image onto a rock, and leave it in Blackburn town centre for a visitor to the town centre to find during that week.
If you (or your friend or family member) paint and place a rock in the town centre, please take a photo and post it on social media with the #BlackburnRocks for #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek hashtags. We will ask people who find the rocks to do the same.
During the week we will also be sharing positive, uplifting mental health and nature related quotes linked to #BlackburnRocks. Please feel free to share and re-post those quotes.
Thank you for your support with this initiative! #BlackburnRocks!
