Story

This is the year of young people 2018.

It is my aim to promote a culture of openess. Mental health is increasing. 51% of young people say they commonly feel anxious, 53% speak of constant stress and 1 in 5 feel hopeless. The youngest person to have self harmed is seven years old. We can no longer ignore this. I myself struggle on a daily basis with anxiety and depression. My challenge is Everest, Base camp reaching altitudes of 5,364m. This is a challenge, reaching base camp means 50% less oxygen than at sea level. It is not my only challenge. Everyday is a challenge..

 ...to catch my breath. If you support me in my trek. As little as £17 could provide a teenager with 1-1 counselling from a member of the self harming team. A  sponsor of  £20 will pay for a home visit. Penumbra relies on donations.  Can you please help to save a life? This may not be a cuddly subject but its an important one to me.
