My story

[p]Thank you for visiting my page. I'm running the London marathon and fundraising in support of Mind. This is personal, as my 14 year old daughter has been suffering from major depression disorder for more than 12 months, 6 months of which were spent in hospital. Prior to her illness, I was completely oblivious to the debilitating effects of mental health issues, and how common they are in society today. [/p][p]Who are Mind?[/p][p]We're Mind, the mental health charity. We believe no one should have to face a mental health problem alone. We're here for you. Today. Now. Whether you're stressed, depressed or in crisis. We'll listen, give support and advice, and fight your corner.[/p][p]We provide [url=https://www.mind.org.uk/information-support/]advice and support[/url] to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem. We [url=https://www.mind.org.uk/news-campaigns/campaigns/]campaign[/url] to improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding. We won't give up until everyone experiencing a mental health problem gets support and respect.[/p][p]Watch this short video to find out more?[/p][p][url=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OPxHTZRwXX8]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OPxHTZRwXX8[/url][/p][p]I'm raising funds to support the important work Mind does and to allow them to continue to be there for everyone who needs them. Please donate if you can.[/p][p]This is what your donation could do:[/p][p][b]£10[/b] could allow us to send essential information booklets about mental health to 40 people.[/p][p][b]£40[/b] could pay for 28 people to campaign for change on our behalf.[/p][p][b]£70[/b] could keep our online community, Elefriends, open and safe for two hours. [/p][p][b]£120[/b] could offer a lifeline to eight people in desperate need of support from our Mind legal line.[/p][p][b]£200[/b] could help us keep the Mind Infoline open for 1 hour, helping 35 people.[/p][p][b]£300[/b] could support a young person bereaved by suicide to access 1:1 and group support. [/p][p][b]£550[/b] could provide five people struggling with their mental health a place in a 10-week wellbeing group with team sports and cookery.[/p][p]Thank you for taking the time to visit my page and for donating. Your support is hugely appreciated.[/p][p]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to Mind. [/p][p]Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this.[/p]
