Weʼre raising £5,000 to creative workshops to help people with mental health illnesses
- Manchester, UK
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.
Mental health is still a illness which has alot of stigma associated with it. Alot of people like myself that suffer from a form of mental health still struggle to be open about what they are feeling.
I found that writing stories really helped me with my depression. I found that it was a way to tell my story through characters so that it wasn't me that was the one who was on the center stage.
This prompt me to come up with a free creative workshop that others that suffer from mental health could also benefit from.
These creative workshops will run in the evenings. Each workshop will be focused on expressing yourself through a form of art whether that be dancing, singing, acting or painting etc.
The workshops will be ran by qualified staff like myself who will make sure that each workshop is ran correctly.
But without any support then this won't be possible. If you have any questions or would like to get involved then contact me directly.
