I am supporting Stockport Mind for this years Manchester Half Marathon. Stockport Mind is an independent, local mental health charity which delivers services to young people and adults.
Year on year I hear more stories of people who are suffering from mental health distress, whether minor or serious, and as it is often hard to easily see those that are struggling, it is therefore hard to show support and encouragement.
I believe that many people go through a stage in their life whereby they would benefit from speaking to an independent source to help them through a challenging time, yet choose to go on in silence.
I want to help generate awareness of charities like Stockport Mind and help lead people to understand that mental health isn't something to be ashamed of or hide away from, and that support is always there.
