We are excited and proud to announce our new mental health partnership with Disability Horizons (DH), the online disability lifestyle publication that aims to give disabled people a voice. DH will give us the platform to support many more disabled people and their families through our new lottery-funded mental health and wellbeing community resource.
The resource will enable you to work with a peer to improve your mental health and wellbeing. It includes information and tool kits on how to improve self-esteem and how to manage the many challenging situations being disabled brings. It will have a forum, a chat room and videos from disabled people and their partners, including some interviews with disabled celebs (including DH’s CEO Liz Ransome-Corker and DH founder Martyn Sibley!). There will also be regular live events and Q&As.
Launch date: 11 November, you can register here.
Founded by two disabled guys in 2011, Disability Horizons publishes articles on a wide variety of topics, all to support the aim of a world where disabled people live exactly as they choose to. All articles are sourced directly from its community of readers, and all team members are disabled, have a long-term health condition or a close connection with disability, making Disability Horizons a lifestyle publication about disabled people, for disabled people. At its heart, Disability Horizons aims to inform, entertain and connect disabled people together.
Having also seen how great products and services can make a real difference to disabled people’s lives, in January 2020 it launched an online shop selling a curated range of disability products that are innovative, stylish and truly valuable, all from trusted suppliers. All products sold have been selected through recommendations from its community of readers and based on the team’s experiences over the years.
It also works with companies to help connect them with disabled people through its magazine, social media platforms and newsletter, to ultimately create fully inclusive services and products across all sectors.
