Mental Health Mail Swap

When my close friend and fellow mental health advocate Lauren came up with the idea of a Mental Health Mail Swap, I jumped at the chance to get involved. Despite my love for social media as well as the ease and efficiency of emails and text messages, does anything quite beat receiving a parcel from the postman?

I was paired up with another lovely Lauren and excited when she posted this tweet of the package before she sent it off to me
I'm glad Lauren posted that photo of how prettily the box was wrapped because I forgot to take one before opening the parcel. I was just too eager to see what was inside, and I wasn't disappointed! Along with a lovely letter, Lauren gave me little packets of her favourite things - sweets (sorry, I ate some before taking these pics), tea bags and temporary tattoos - plus a candle and some cute little notes.

Thank you so much Lauren! I really appreciate everything in the box and it certainly put a smile on my face! 

It was a brilliant idea, and I'm looking forward to seeing whether Lauren likes what I put in her parcel, and what everyone else received in theirs too!
