About The Project

 

Weave Survival Tips is a campaign that focuses on mental wellbeing in an engaging and inclusive way. The campaign acknowledges that we all go through hard times and celebrates that everybody has unique ways of coping and surviving, no matter who you are or where you come from. 

Our goal is to create a space where people feel safe and encouraged to share their Survival tips and engage in activities and conversations that enhance mental wellbeing. Together, we are creating an online resource of Survival Tips that is accessible and constantly expanding, and where people can identify and connect with other people's experiences and tools for getting through tough times. 

We believe that asking “what do you do to get through hard times?” is a positive way of shifting the focus from problem centred thinking to a strengths-based, resilience focused frame and we have experienced the power of this shift when people are so willing to share and contribute when they are asked to reflect on their strengths and what works for them. 

Mental health issues are often framed in a problem centred way that focuses on labels and perpetuates experiences of stigma and isolation. Help us shift the conversation away from this focus, so that together we can build a campaign that highlights people's strengths and resilience.
