Everyone is affected by mental ill health at some point in their lives, either personally or through family or friends, whether it is anxiety, depression, psychosis or dementia.
I am privileged to work in mental health and in order to raise awareness I am going to jump out of a perfectly good plane! Please support me, and The Mental Health Foundation by donating.
The Mental Health Foundation is the UK’s charity for everyone’s mental health. With prevention at the heart of what they do, the Mental Health Foundation aim to find and address the sources of mental health problems so that people and communities can thrive.
Hosted by the Mental Health Foundation, Mental Health Awareness Week 2019 will take place from Monday 13 to Sunday 19 May 2019. The theme for 2019 is Body Image – how we think and feel about our bodies.
Body image issues can affect all of us at any age. During the week we will be publishing new research, considering some of the reasons why our body image can impact the way that we feel, campaigning for change and publishing practical tools.
Since our first Mental Health Awareness Week in 2001, we’ve raised awareness of topics like stress, relationships, loneliness, altruism, sleep, alcohol and friendship. This year, with your support, we want to reach more people than ever!
The skydive will take place on Saturday 18th May near Peterborough.
