    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.


    I am swimming in the sea 4 times a week for 1 year, no wetsuit even in Winter ! I started on Sept 11 (my birthday).
    ALL DONATIONS OVER £30 RECEIVE A FREE 1 HOUR THERAPEUTIC MASSAGE. Please donate. Money raised will help me to continue my revovery programme, raise awareness of mental health issues, train in life alignment & set up a NATURAL HEALTH CENTRE overlooking the sea, offering holistic, alternative & complementary therapies & classes for anyone in need covering all health issues, juice/smoothie/health food bar, community support, accompanied walks & sea swims & warm changing spaces. Clients pay what they can afford or exchange by working in juice bar / cleaning etc.
    What is effective can often be difficult to find & too expensive for many people.
    I feel that mental health care in the NHS is inadequate, outdated & underfunded & doesn't treat individuals holistically & effectively which is what is needed.
    I have had depression on & off since i was 18. From June 2015 to July 2016 I had severe, suicidal, treatment resistant depression. I had 3 months of ECT, various medications & a hospital stay. All this was ineffective with horrendous detrimental side effects on my health. My psychiatrist said drugs weren't the answer for me but all he could do was give me more. My family & friends have been very supportive, although it has been extremely hard for them too. I have 2 young boys who have seen me suffering, this breaks my heart.
    I'm just now emerging from this with the help of a naturopath & life alignment therapist. Finally I feel that I am getting to the root causes of the problems & dealing with them holistically & effectively. I'm off all medication. A lot of damage has been caused by toxins, medications, infections, ECT. I still have a long way to go.
    I'm continuing this programme to repair the damage, build up my strength, heal physically, energetically, emotionally & mentally & prevent relapse. Then I want to bring this programme to others.
