Weʼre raising £2,000 to Help fund a 24/7 Emergency Mental Health Centre and also Support Groups.
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.
Currently run 3 support groups in Somerset which are all unfunded:
Mood Menders Group 1 & Mood Menders Group 2
About Mood Menders...
Mood Menders is a Peer support group for those struggling with their mental health. The group aims to help build confidence, improve mood and meet new people in a place where you feel safe and supported. We are a friendly group of various ages who have a good chat & giggle. We also do Activities such as Art therapy, Meditation and group visits to various places.
I would like to be able to provide 1 - 1 counselling to members plus other therapys and be able to afford better days out and more activitys. Also in need of a better venue to hold the support groups and plan to set up 2 more groups for children.
The Third Group is PROS peer Support where everyone can pop in and sit and chat over a cuppa - This group has helped alot of isolated people get out and make friends as has Mood Menders. It would be nice if we could do a day trip twice a year with members of PROS and also be able to set up some projects for the members.
Currently funding out of my own pocket but cant afford much. I am passionate about what I do and it is rewarding to see members grow and become happier. I would like this to continue and be able to afford the things mentioned above but most of all being able to bring in counselling and other therapys.
I also have a larger goal of setting up a 24/7 crisis centre for people feeling suicidal and in mental health emergency crisis. So money raised will also help towards setting this centre up and funding it as well.
