Story

In 2017 I will be running one Half Marathon EVERY MONTH! In the cold, rain, snow, sun, frost etc, I'll be out there training, running, sweating, freezing! I have already booked in January, February, March, May and July. I will book the others as and when the dates are released.
Scarborough Survivors is a registered charity which was founded in 1994 by service users who wanted to ensure that their voice was clearly heard within the Mental Health arena, it quickly became renowned for its work and was used as a model for similar groups set up around the country. As part of its work it offers a local self-supporting group covering the Scarborough and surrounding areas, and is made up entirely of people with direct experience of mental health problems, either personally or as a carer, close relative or friend.

As a user-led organisation, the emphasis is on self-help and sharing information gained from personal experience. A key element of Survivors' work is to represent the voice of the service user on a wide range of committees and groups locally.

As most of you will know, Mental Health, in particular Schizophrenia is a huge part of my life and I am learning new things every day. Scarborough Survivors provides a variety of daily/weekly activities including self help groups, feel good walks, coffee mornings, arts and crafts, aromatherapy groups, sign language courses, counselling and life skills programmes. Please help to keep this available for those who need it, to continue to survive mental health.
