Theory of Change: The Mindapples Approach

What's the 5-a-day for your mind?

The aim of Mindapples is to help everyone take better care of their minds.

Declaring victory

Well done mindapples!

It’s been over five years since we started Mindapples as a business (and even longer since the start of our campaign), and it’s fair to say the journey has been… emotional.

Mindapples in action: Brixton Market, Oct 2010

In October 2010, Mindapples teamed up with NHS Lambeth and the nice people at Spacemakers and Transition Town Brixton, to install a pop-up Mindapples Tree in Brixton Village Market and talk to complete strangers about the health of their minds.

Thanks to Hektor and Rick for the brilliant video, and to Esther, Jenny and Sahar for collecting Mindapples on the day! If you’d like Mindapples to come to your town, please e-mail pleasedomenext@mindapples.org.
