    Story

    Hi my name is Darren and I have mental health issues, over the last year I have had several episodes of my mental health flaring up and in December 2019 I attempted to take my own life and took an overdose of prescription medication. I felt so low and worthless and that I didn't want to be here and that the world would be a better place without me. My family got me to hospital where I was treated for my overdose but I still had the feeling that taking my own life was the best thing for me to do as a result of that I was sectioned for seven days and placed in hospital under constant watch. Over my time there I was linked in with Carr Gomm, Street Soccer and Restart all off which are charities that made me learn it's ok to have issues and to feel the way I feel . These charities have been there for me and given me so much support and got me involved in activities that give me a purpose in life and aid me in my recovery

    So I feel that these charities have given me so much help and support that I want to give something back so that they can continue their great work not just with me but with so many others so myself my brother and my cousin are going to walk up Ben Lomand on the 10 August to raise money for these charities and their vital work that I have first hand experience of

    Everyone please remember its ok to feel this way but please don't hold it all in let it out, speak about it with others and seek help
