Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

This May, myself and 11 colleagues are attempting the 10 peak challenge to raise money and awareness for Mind Charity-

www.mind.org.uk

  • 1 in 10 children have a diagnosable mental health disorder – that’s roughly 3 children in every classroom 
  • 1 in 4 of us will experience some kind of mental health disorder every single year.
  • 1 in 5 young adults have a diagnosable mental health disorder 
  • Half of all mental health problems manifest by the age of 14, with 75% by age 24 
  • Almost 1 in 4 children and young people show some evidence of mental ill health (including anxiety and depression) 
  • Suicide is the most common cause of death for boys aged between 5-19 years, and the second most common for girls of this age 
  • 1 in 12 young people self-harm at some point in their lives, though there is evidence that this could be a lot higher. Girls are more likely to self-harm than boys. 
We hope that by bringing attention to this issue we will not only raise money for the charity but also give people the confidence to come forward and be open about their experiences!

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
