Story

Thanks for visiting my JustGiving page. You can follow my training in more detail at https://www.strava.com/athletes/jasonnichol

I’m running the Great North Run 2019 for Mind – The Mental Health Charity. This is my second attempt and I’ll be trying to do it in 2 hours or less. It would be amazing if you could help me out by donating in any way you can – every little helps, so they say!

The mental health system and the way we receive help in this country is in dire straits. The service we depend on is completely on its knees. Approximately 1 in 4 people in the UK will experience a mental health problem each year. 1 in 6 people report experiencing a common mental health problem in any given week. This includes anxiety and depression.

There's such a strain on the service that sometimes you can expect to wait 6 weeks for counselling. This could also mean waiting up to two weeks for a consultation.

Waiting 6 weeks for help is the last thing you want if you’re suffering right now and asking for help can be one of the biggest struggles to overcome. Reaching out and then ending up on a lengthy waiting list can often make the situation even worse.

It's difficult enough for someone to admit they need help and it can be the last straw to reach that stage. Therefore, it’s paramount to support this service. It needs to be stronger, so we can all benefit from it.

Mental health affects everyone. Let’s help each other out by supporting Mind and the great work they do for us. Let’s put something back in to this service and help someone else further down the line.

Thank you for your support,
