Story

Languagematters is proudly raising money for Mind, a fantastic charitable organisation offering information, advice and support to people with mental health problems whilst proactively increasing public awareness and understanding of issues relating to mental health and campaigning for the rights of people who have experience of mental distress.

Some of Mind's current campaigns include:       

  • Taking Care of Business: Aimed at tackling workplace stress and  making workplaces more mentally healthy.

  • Our Lives, Our Choices: Mind is part of the national campaign for independent living. The campaign calls for an overhaul of the health and social care system.

In addition, Mind is part of the Time to Change coalition, an England-wide campaign aiming to reduce mental health-related stigma and discrimination.

With mental health still being a taboo subject (especially in the work place), we would like to contribute to a great charity and increase social awareness where possible for people who have experience of mental distress.

In order to raise money for Mind,  our team will we be taking part in one of Tough Mudder's events. Tough Mudder is a 10mile run with 20 obstacles, including but not limited to; ice plunges, wall climbs, mud pits, rope swings and electricity shocks (that’s right, electricity!!). The LM team will be put to the test mentally and physically. Bring it on!
