My story

[p]I admit – when I started working at Mind three and a half years ago I didn’t know a lot about mental health and I really didn’t know about Mind. I mainly just needed a job, that didn’t involve PR’ing tinned soup (see previous role for details). This job was only ever going to be for a couple of years max, but ….[/p] [p]In speaking every week with the people Mind helps, I started to see parallels in my own family – recognised the devastating effects depression can have on a person and those around them. I realised that, as in my own family where mental health can sometimes feel impossible to talk about, there are millions of others across the country who feel they have nowhere to turn, who are scared and confused by what they’re experiencing and feel totally alone.[/p] [p]In a nutshell that’s why Mind is here. For the 1 in 4 who experience a mental health problem every year. To be that person they can talk to, to shout at M.Ps when the government don’t take it seriously and to provide advice and support when people desperately need it.[/p] [p]It is a charity I believe in wholeheartedly which is why I’ve been training hard to run this half marathon, wearing a Mind vest.[/p] [p]Thank you so much for all your lovely support.[/p] [p]Love[/p][p]Camilla x[/p]
