My story

[lt]p style="color: #333333; font-family: Georgia, 'Times New Roman', 'Bitstream Charter', Times, serif; font-size: 16px; line-height: 24px;"[gt][span=color: #333333; font-family: Georgia, 'Times New Roman', 'Bitstream Charter', Times, serif; font-size: 16px; line-height: 24px;]There is so much yet to learn and understand about mental illness, which is why I am passionate about mental health research. In order to better understand and treat mental health problems, investment in innovative research is critically needed. Further, efforts to reduce stigma and promote mental health are all important factors in the effort to support those who are dealing with mental health problems as well as enable individuals to live full, productive, and rich lives.[/span][/p][lt]p style="color: #333333; font-family: Georgia, 'Times New Roman', 'Bitstream Charter', Times, serif; font-size: 16px; line-height: 24px;"[gt][span=color: #333333; font-family: Georgia, 'Times New Roman', 'Bitstream Charter', Times, serif; font-size: 16px; line-height: 24px;]I have decided to combine my passion for mental health with my love for bicycles in this grand "Pedalling for Mental Heath" project. [/span][/p][lt]p style="color: #333333; font-family: Georgia, 'Times New Roman', 'Bitstream Charter', Times, serif; font-size: 16px; line-height: 24px;"[gt][span=color: #333333; font-family: Georgia, 'Times New Roman', 'Bitstream Charter', Times, serif; font-size: 16px; line-height: 24px;] [/span]Challenge 1: Riding to my roots (London to Netherlands -  March 2016)[/p] [lt]p style="color: #333333; font-family: Georgia, 'Times New Roman', 'Bitstream Charter', Times, serif; font-size: 16px; line-height: 24px;"[gt]Challenge 2: To the moors (London to Bradford - April/May 2016)[/p] [lt]p style="color: #333333; font-family: Georgia, 'Times New Roman', 'Bitstream Charter', Times, serif; font-size: 16px; line-height: 24px;"[gt]Challenge 3: Sister's century ride (Canada - June 2016)[/p] [lt]p style="color: #333333; font-family: Georgia, 'Times New Roman', 'Bitstream Charter', Times, serif; font-size: 16px; line-height: 24px;"[gt]Challenge 4: Dykxhoorns in France (London to Paris - July 2016)[/p] [lt]p style="color: #333333; font-family: Georgia, 'Times New Roman', 'Bitstream Charter', Times, serif; font-size: 16px; line-height: 24px;"[gt]Challenge 5: Wouldn't it be Nice to see Italy?
