Today ... 03/10/2017
I am THRILLED to reveal I am reviving my #ImStillDane walk for 1 DAY ONLY to celebrate World Mental Health Day on Tuesday 10/10/17. I will be walking the streets of Edinburgh for my friends at Support in Mind Scotland.
I am giving the revival the Dane twist ... which means that this time ... instead of getting YOU to sign my T-shirt ... I am giving YOU a slice of Support in Mind Scotland cake and a goody bag filled to say thank you for taking the time to chat with me and for all your support.
The purpose of this walk is to help talking so openly about mental health be literally ... a piece of cake ...!
I have 22 pieces of cake up for grabs. Who wants to catch up with me Tuesday 10th October and have your cake and eat it? Whilst talking openly about mental health and if you can spare it ... donate a wee £1 or £2 to Support in Mind Scotland via this page!???
Back in July ...
I'm taking part in this fun and interactive 100 Streets challenge (created by Rugby legend, Scott Hastings and his lovely wife, Jenny Hastings) as a positive way of rebuilding my walking and talking confidence. My confidence has recently taken a battering after a very difficult and crushing spell with Danepression (Depression) and Anxiety, which has forced me into career break mode for this very moment.
Taking part in this challenge and your support for me doing truly means the world to me. Support in Mind Scotland has been in my life for over 4 years. They equip people with the support and tools to manage their mental health and have been a true ally to me in helping me shine during difficult times.
My challenge will see me walk streets on a planned route between Edinburgh, the Lothian's and Fife from Monday 10th July to Monday 17th July. It will focus on having open conversations about mental health, but in a really fun way. I will be wearing my 100 Streets Challenge T-shirt and will be getting as many people possible to sign it as it go. The people signing will be a mixture of passers-by, acquaintances, close friends and family. This approach has been chosen to reflect that mental health affects all us.
Thanks for reading and for your continued support.
