Story

Mental health is a growing issue in society, which affects 1 in 4 people within their lifetime. At the YMCA, there is currently no facilities for young

eople to talk about their mental health and discuss their issues and the reasons for their mental state. We want to raise awareness and show that it is okay to talk about mental health and that your not alone, no matter who you are.

The money which we will raise will be given to the YMCA, so that they can provide mental health counselling from the 'Mind' organisation. This should hopefully improve mental health in young people there and therefor improve their lives, which will encourage them to raise awareness themselves.

Mental illness is nothing to be ashamed off. Neither is talking about it.

As young people ourselves, we all know someone who has suffered with mental illness, and seen how they've dealt with them. We have also seen what mental illness can do to people, and how it affects not only the person suffering, but people around them.

By donating to Mountain Thoughts, you will be helping to make a difference within the local community and helping young people to overcome their mental illness, by talking about it.

Events we are holding

We are going to do an 8 hour bike next week between the group and have a goal to cycle 170 km during the day. Please help to support our event and make a difference to young people within the community.

We are also going to recreate an overgrown garden space at Trentham High academy, as the outdoors and garden areas are good for mental health. We think that this is a good opportunity to give back to the community.
