Story

As final year students at Oxford Brookes, we are trying to raise awareness and funds to support the mental health charity - Mind. We will be holding a fundraising day on the 25th April, which will include us dressing up as our alter-ego! 

We would really appreciate any other support so have set up this page..

Why have we chosen Mind?

Knowing that a lot of students in particular have either suffered from some form of mental illness, or know someone who has, we want to raise awareness of the support that is available for everyone out there!


"For 10 years my mum has suffered with depression. It has been a struggle for not only her but us as a family too. During November and December 2016 my mum became extremely manic and was unaware of the way she was acting differently; not sleeping and drinking heavily. On the weekend of 10thDecember after the involvement of numerous police officers, paramedics, GPs and mental health specialists my mum was sectioned under the mental health act. She was taken to a psychiatric hospital and stayed there for 7 weeks where she received treatment. At that moment I believe it was the hardest for us as family as my mum was unaware of the feelings of others and what was actually happening to her. It has a been a slow recovery process which we are still dealing with now. With the support of friends and family and using websites to improve our knowledge we are managing the change that has occurred in our life."


Having all supported someone close to us through their battle with depression, we know how important it is to make sure people are not feeling alone. Considering this, we are keen to raise money for Mind, who offer help to those suffering with mental health, as well as those who are supporting their loved ones through the fight.
