Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page. 

This year I have ridden the 100 mile Ride London ride to raise support for Oakleaf

Every year 1 in 4 people will suffer from a mental health issue

The Covid-19 pandemic has had an enormous impact on the mental health and wellbeing of UK adults, and those who were already struggling have been disproportionately impacted. 

In 2018/19, stress, depression or anxiety were responsible for 44% of all cases of work-related ill health and 54% of all working days lost due to health issues in GB

People with mental health needs have the second lowest employment rate of any disabled group with only 28.5% securing long-term work, and those with mental ill-health are more vulnerable to the negative effects of unemployment 

Some people do recover, they respond well to treatment and medication without too much damage to their emotional, social and working life. 

Oakleaf exists to help people who are less fortunate and find their road to recovery more difficult to achieve. Finding and keeping a job is an important aspect of the recovery process and ensuring the right support is vital. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6WC-iDCG3hg&t=11s

As a former Trustee of Oakleaf I know from first hand experience the difference they make to the lives of real people. Anybody can have mental health issues, young or old, rich or poor, the haves and the have-nots. The Safe Haven that is open everyday in Guildford is literally a life saver.
