MCDONALDS franchisee, John Kiely MBE has partnered with Coventry and Warwickshire Mind and introduces pop-up mental health support in the seven McDonalds he owns in Coventry.

It will be available every four to six weeks going from restaurant to restaurant and no purchase is required to access the support.

The idea came from Dee Hodgson who has had in-house training with Mind, the NHS and has worked in frontline and signposting services for over 15 years.

John said: “I am so proud to offer this vital support in all my restaurants – we’re offering this support to everyone in the community, not just customers.

“With the current rise of mental health issues, it’s critical as a local business owner that I do my part to give back to our local community.

“I hope that the new service available in my restaurants goes some way to help support our staff and customers and I would like to thank Coventry and Warwickshire Mind and Dee for working with me on this initiative.”

Dee said: “I applaud the Coventry McDonald’s team for their decision to give our local community easy access to vital support which can really make a difference.

“We are really looking forward to meeting more people from around the city and working with John and his crew to make a positive impact.”

The support will be available between 12pm–2pm on the following dates so far, with new dates being added each month:

Binley, Coventry – 13th July

Holyhead Road, Coventry – 10th August

Cross Cheaping or West Orchards, Coventry – 31st August

Abbey Park, Coventry – 28th September
