    Funded on Wednesday, 29th August 2018

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    I was saddened but not shocked to discover a few years ago, that black African and Caribbean men were the most overrepresented BME groups in inpatient mental health services in the country. With contributing factors such as stigma, cultural barriers and discrimination; I am surprised that it has taken this long for awareness of this issues to arise.

    Having said this, ill mental health is not a black African and Caribbean mans' problem. We are all vulnerable to the demands of life which can lead to an imbalance in the management of mental health. I believe it is our responsibility to take steps to maintain our own mental health though a range of activities 💆🏾‍♂️💅🏾🙆🏼‍♂️🕺🏼🥒🥕🤝🤸‍♀️🏊🏿‍♀️

    We also have a responsibility to support others to maintain good mental health by talking about it 🗣listening👂🏾 sharing experiences and advice.....and of course GIVING!!! 😊

    With this in MIND (get it? 😂) on Sunday 20th May I will be pulling on my neon-orange runners 👟with matching sweat band 😉 to attempt another timed 13.1 mile run 🏃🏾‍♀️🏃🏾‍♀️🏃🏾‍♀️at the Virgin Hackney Half marathon.

    I hope you will help me to raise £400 to support and promote better mental health management; especially amongst black African and Caribbean men.

    70% of your donations will go to mental health charity MIND. Please check out the link below for information on some of the amazing projects that they are delivering in our community.
