As mental health begins to rise up the agenda, we are becoming more aware of the need to provide help and support to the one in four of us who experience a mental health problem every year, and support communities across the UK to build resilience.”Billy Watson, Chief Executive of SAMH, said:“We are excited to launch this fantastic new partnership with the Co-op, which will help communities come together to improve mental wellbeing across Scotland and beyond. We know that connecting with others, access to the right support and looking after your own mental and physical health are just some of the factors that can benefit mental wellbeing.“Working with one of Scotland’s biggest retailers and funeral operators is an excellent opportunity to help communities make positive changes, and we thank the Co-op for recognising the importance.”The campaign follows another recent charity partnership, between Co-op and British Red Cross. During the campaign the Government appointed a minister with specific responsibility for loneliness and the “Connecting Communities” programme, funded by money raised by Co-op colleagues and members, enabled the British Red Cross to support more than 10,000 people. The Co-op has announced a new charity partnership with Mind in England and Wales, SAMH in Scotland and Inspire in Northern Ireland to support its commitment to support mental wellbeing among its colleagues and communities across the UK.The Co-op will be working with the charities to help people develop skills to support both their own and others’ mental health in their communities.The Co-op also aims to raise £6m through the partnership by engaging colleagues, members and customers in a range of national and local fundraising.The initial focus will be on fundraising but the partnership will develop in order to enable the charities to deliver innovative new services in communities across the UK to ensure people receive the support they need.Steve Murrells, Co-op CEO said:“For decades mental health has been under reported and underfunded. It’s also one of those issues people still find difficult to talk about.“It not only feels right that as a Co-op we focus on this issue but our Community Wellbeing Index, which enables people to go on line and compare their community with 28,000 others across the country, has identified mental wellbeing as an area that needs our support.“Supporting the issues surrounding mental wellbeing is a key part of our Co-operate 2022 plan and is interlinked to our other key focus areas, spaces and skills, to create healthier and happier communities.“We are looking forward to working with Mind, SAMH and Inspire to bring communities together to improve mental wellbeing.”Paul Farmer, Chief Executive of Mind, said: Advertisement Co-op launches charity partnership to support mental wellbeing Melanie May | 10 October 2019 | News Tagged with: wellbeing AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis23 About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Atlanta’s ‘wall of solidarity’

first_imgAtlanta — Upwards of 200 people gathered at the Memorial Drive Presbyterian Church, a center for immigrant and refugees services on Dec. 12, to publicly and visibly denounce the racist and Islamophobic pronouncements of politicians, both nationally and in Georgia.In the past, Gov. Nathan Deal has repeatedly stated that Georgia wants no additional refugees. Most recently, he announced that besides calling Syrian refugees “unwelcome,” he has directed state agencies to refuse to assist them in receiving federal benefits such as food stamps.During Deal’s tenure in office, Georgia has passed numerous pieces of anti-immigrant legislation. In addition, the notorious, privately owned and operated Stewart Detention Center is located in Lumpkin, Ga. About 1,800 undocumented men are held there in horrible and inhumane conditions, some for years, awaiting deportation.“Welcome to Georgia” say people at speakout in defiance of governor’sexclusion of refugees.Photo: Steve EberhardtThe multinational, multigenerational crowd assembled on busy Memorial Drive had a completely different message. Initiated by the Georgia Peace and Justice Coalition, the rally was billed as “Welcome to Georgia” and a declaration of solidarity with refugees and immigrants.At the speakout, refugees from Sudan, Syria, Pakistan, Congo and Somalia described the devastation, suffering and pain their countries have endured because of war and their hope to be able to live in peace and security.Then, it was time to take the message to the street as human billboards reaching out to the hundreds of passing motorists.The billboards stretched the full length of the block with their signs calling for “No more war,” “Solidarity with refugees and immigrants,” “Fight racism,” “Welcome Syrians” and “Human rights for all.” Drivers honked their horns in approval; passengers raised fists out the windows in agreement; smiles and waves were abundant as people slowed to take pictures.This section of Memorial Drive connects largely African-American neighborhoods where many refugee and immigrant families have settled. A right-wing county commissioner and state legislators have targeted an apartment complex directly behind the church with vicious scapegoating, blaming victims of U.S. militarism and economic exploitation for community blight and crime.Invigorated by their unity, dozens of people, once strangers, stayed to talk about what to do next.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Chancellor talks stimulus money, COVID-19 vaccines and more at limited attendance faculty town hall

first_imgFacebook + posts TCU, former professor each file motions for judgment in discrimination lawsuit Board approves tuition freeze, RRI actions but doesn’t act on eligibility issue spurred by Williams Settlement reached between TCU, former professor in discrimination lawsuit printTCU plans to take its share of the latest round of government stimulus after declining similar assistance last year. Chancellor Victor Boschini announced the university’s plans at a faculty meeting Tuesday. The in-person meeting was dubbed as a ‘town hall’ but attendance was limited to 25 and there was no simultaneous virtual option. A link of the meeting will be posted on TCU Today at a later date.  Boschini answered questions from those in attendance for nearly 40 minutes. Topics included stimulus money, COVID-19 vaccinations and lessons from the pandemic. TCU eyes stimulus The stimulus bill signed by President Joe Biden earlier this month includes almost $40 billion for higher education. When asked about the new stimulus, Boschini answered affirmatively that TCU will take their share “if we can get it.” The chancellor added that there are some qualifications for this round that are different from the initial stimulus included in last spring’s CARES Act.The university passed on their multimillion dollar share of that stimulus, which would have been split between students and TCU. Boschini said Tuesday that they were “shamed” into not taking the money, echoing comments he made at a virtual town hall last summer. Then, he said a movement to stop “rich schools” from taking the money drove their decision to decline the money. It is unclear when the university will receive the new stimulus money if they qualify. TCU hosted a COVID-19 drive-thru vaccine clinic in the parking lots of the Amon G. Carter Stadium. (Heesoo Yang/Staff Photographer)Mandatory vaccines aren’t ruled out for the fall COVID-19 vaccinations were a popular topic at Tuesday’s meeting. In his opening remarks, Boschini asked the TCU community to fill out the vaccine verification form after they receive their shots.This form will allow the university to track how many people are vaccinated more accurately. Boschini added that TCU may be able to achieve herd immunity among the campus community if they can get upwards of 70 percent of members vaccinated.  Later, the chancellor was asked if mandatory vaccinations for students and staff next fall is a possibility. He didn’t offer a clear answer, but said that the university is watching how other schools, such as Rutgers University, implement mandatory vaccines.Boschini also took the question as another opportunity to implore students and staff to register for the vaccine. Gaining herd immunity without a mandatory vaccination policy, he said, would be even better. The TCU campus has been more empty than usual this year. (Heesoo Yang/Staff Photographer)Lessons learned from the pandemic A number of questions were asked surrounding the unprecedented past year for TCU, and what the future holds. Boschini said he was most proud that the university was able to hold classes for the past two semesters and be on campus in some capacity. The pandemic, he added, forced TCU to look at things with a fresh view and led to some changes that they will keep going forward. The “biggest downfall” at the university over the last year was communication, Boschini said.He described an environment in which decisions were made in a vacuum as things constantly changed and few were around to be part of the discussions. Last summer, some Faculty Senate members discussed a vote of no confidence on university leadership. One of their main concerns was a lack of transparency from the administration. Read More: Faculty Senate chair demands change in open letter to administrationThe vote was tabled, but faculty discontent was expressed in an open letter published by Faculty Senate Chair Sean Atkinson. More and more students will be returning to campus activities next fall. (Heesoo Yang/Staff Photographer)Looking ahead Boschini concluded the meeting by talking about what’s next at TCU. Next week, the Board of Trustees will be meeting to approve the annual budget and tenure for some professors. In the fall, the university is planning to return to a fully in-person and on-campus experience. TCU is currently ahead on first-year deposit payments compared to the previous two years, according to the chancellor. As the university inches closer to normalcy, Boschini said that he is excited to begin shaking hands, giving hugs and walking through campus again. Tomorrow, the chancellor will host another ‘town hall’ with 25 students in attendance.  Benton McDonald is a senior journalism and political science double major from Austin, Texas.

Living paycheck to paycheck on $75,000 a year

first_img 14SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr One-third of high earners get by this way.If you are struggling to save money and think that a larger paycheck is the key to solving your problems, a new report suggests that may not be completely true. According to a recent survey by SunTrust STI -0.16% , almost one-third of survey respondents making $75,000 per year or more live paycheck to paycheck on occasion, as do one-fourth of the respondents making over $100,000 annually. The secrets to saving are as much of a mindset issue as they are an income issue.The survey, conducted by Harris on SunTrust’s behalf, polled 518 adult respondents (ages 18 and over) in households that brought home a combined income of $75,000 or more. One-third of those households cited insufficient financial discipline as a reason that they do not reach their goals. The survey does not say how much overlap that has with the percentage of people that sometimes live paycheck to paycheck, but it’s a solid bet that most high earners in a paycheck-to-paycheck situation have at least some lack of financial discipline.The response to another question highlights the financial discipline aspect. Within the group that aren’t saving as much as they want to save because of their lifestyle choices, 68% said that expenses from dining out was the main reason for their lack of saving. The number was slightly higher among millennials (70%), but in general, this was true across the generations. Entertainment and clothing were also listed as reasons that saving was limited. These are all discretionary purchases related to fiscal discipline, regardless of income. continue reading »last_img read more
