Surrey mental health and wellbeing charity, Catalyst has teamed up with Surrey County Council to help spread hope and awareness.

Some of the people who Catalyst support have crocheted 170 little butterflies at their wellbeing drop-ins.

These will be distributed within communities throughout Surrey. The special thing about these butterflies is that on the back there is a QR code.

If you find a butterfly, scan the QR code and you will be taken to a page on Catalyst’s website where a message of hope can be written on a digital noticeboard for people .

Catalyst is asking people to help raise awareness on social media by taking a photo of the butterfly, uploading it to Facebook or Instagram and using the hashtag #butterflies4hopesurrey

If you don’t find a butterfly, but would like to get involved, you can visit Catalyst’s Butterflies for Hope page to view or create a message of ‘Hope’ for others to see.

This project aims to provide a variety of workshops and activities that will have a positive impact on emotional and mental wellbeing, embedding mental health promotion and building communities and connectedness.

The outcomes from all the sessions will be displayed in a Surrey County Council building to demonstrate how groups have all worked to deliver the aim of the project.

Hope stands for: Honouring, Opportunity and Possibility for Everyone.

Hope can mean something different for everyone, whether it be going for walks, shopping trips, or crocheting – these are all activities that Catalyst has offered to people in Surrey over the past few months.
