In 2010 I completed Wainwrights Coast to Coast Walk and raised money for Rethink Mental Illness. This year I am attempting the Southern Upland Way in Scotland all 212 miles of it , from Portpatrick on the West Coast to Cockburnspath in the East.
My wife Trina volunteers for Rethink Mental Illness by running two groups …..Braintree Rethink Carers Support Group for all those that have a loved one with mental illness & Braintree Rethink Art & Social Group for all those that have a mental illness .
The money I raise will be divided between Rethink Mental Illness and the two support groups in Braintree Essex.
The charity offers support for individuals and their families …..
They help millions of people affected by mental illness by challenging attitudes and changing lives.They believe a better life is possible for millions of people affected by mental illness.
Over 40 years ago, one man bravely spoke about his family’s experiences of mental illness in a letter to the Times and in the process brought together hundreds to talk about their experiences of mental illness and support each other.
Today Rethink Mental Illness directly support almost 60,000 people every year by giving Advice & Information, Services & Groups and of course Campaigning for a better life for those across England to live independently and to realise they are not alone, changing attitudes and policy for millions.
