Story

After battling (and overcoming) several bouts of depression, anxiety, and PTSD, mental health issues have always been at the forefront of my mind. 

With 1 in 4 people in the UK experiencing a mental health problem each year, 2.6 in 100 people from depression, and 4.7 in 100 people suffering from anxiety it's sure to say that mental health is a larger health problem than many think.

Although the NHS offers services to help those affected by mental health issues their approach is often the wrong one, there are some amazing resources out there that provide what the NHS cannot and Mind are one of those charities.

I would love to be able to raise money to help others overcome their battles, just like I have - because it can be done! 

Please help me reach my goal, and help to reach others before it's too late.
