People have burned through their hope reserves and are overwhelmed.
84% of people say that they are fine but rarely mean it.
66% have clinically measurable mental health symptoms of anxiety or depression.
55% are experiencing mild to moderate distress (1).
Like Ross in Friends(2), we keep telling everyone and ourselves “We’re fine.” And rather than sharing our feelings, people tend to hide, keeping quiet out of fear.
This is why the National Day of Hope exists. It’s a place where you can;
Find hope – DIY resources to renew and refresh.
Receive hope – Daily blogs to encourage and reignite hope.
Share hope – Distribute hope to family and friends.
Welcome to a hopeful place.
