UK – The Nottingham-based company Blueprint Promotional Products has helped a team from Nottingham Trent University to raise awareness of student stress, depression and anxiety by providing match-funding to deliver campaign promotional products.
On Monday 4th and Tuesday 5th March a group of third year undergraduates took their campaign “Sunshine and Showers – What’s Your Mental Health Forecast?” to the campuses. Everyone completing a questionnaire around their understanding of mental health issues received a promotional bag, stress reliever ball, leaflets, pens and badges. The team also sported specially-designed T-shirts.
The campaign project was part of the University degree in Exercise, Nutrition and Health. Blueprint Promotional Products has been supplying Nottingham Trent University marketing merchandise for over twelve years, and also works with the national charity Rethink Mental Illness.
