Brighter Journeys in bloom at stations

Our Brighter Journeys campaign is set to breathe life and joy into railway stations this May

What is the Brighter Journeys campaign?

Mental Health Awareness Week (9-15 May) will see phase two our Brighter Journeys campaign grace the concourses of Britain’s railway stations as a way of making them brighter and happier community hubs.

The joint campaign between the rail industry and mental health charity, Chasing the Stigma, aims to support your wellbeing as you return to the railway since the lifting of Covid restrictions.

How will the campaign support your wellbeing?

The campaign will bring the outside to stations, with bursts of colourful flowers in bloom greeting you as you embark on your journey. These sensory installations will act as a pleasant surprise and aim to lift spirits and put smiles on faces.

Research shows that interacting with nature puts people in a more positive mindset and makes them feel more grounded and calm. This campaign uses the power of nature to make people feel happier and more connected to their local railway station, while raising awareness of the Hub of Hope app, which signposts people to support services if they are struggling with their mental health.
