My story

[p]David & Roger, a couple of middle aged men from " The Easyriders" who ride out every Saturday morning on their mountain bikes (and usually stop for a beer at the end) are raising money for Oakleaf Enterprise, Surrey's Mental Health Charity. David's wife Ruth completed the 30 miler for Kelly's and the 50 mile Farnham Ride - a first for her.[/p][p]We will be riding in the Kelly's Challenge on the 19th May (54 miles) - NOW COMPLETED and the Farnham Charity Bike Ride (Roger 25 miles on a Mountain Bike and David and 50 miles on the road bike) on the 7th July. NOW COMPLETED[/p][p]Some statistics regarding mental health in the UK[/p][p]Mental health problems are one of the [b]main causes of the overall disease burden[/b] worldwide.[/p][p]Mental health and behavioural problems (e.g. depression, anxiety and drug use) are reported to be the primary drivers of disability worldwide, causing over [b]40 million years[/b] of disability in 20 to 29-year-olds.[/p][p]Major depression is thought to be the [b]second leading cause[/b] of disability worldwide and a major contributor to the burden of suicide and ischemic heart disease.[/p][p]It is estimated that [b]1 in 6[/b] people in the past week experienced a common mental health problem[/p][p]In 2017, [b]5,821[/b] suicides were recorded in Great Britain.
