People are happy telling the world they have a cold or a broken arm but when it comes to mental health, depression and anxiety it is far more of a taboo subject. It is alot more common than we think and we probably know someone who has a mental health issue even if we dont actually KNOW it. This is because alot of people will put a brave face on and try and face this themselves. I want to raise awareness aswel as money, so that more people feel they can tell their loved ones without feeling scared or embarassed to do so and seek the help they rightfully deserve from the correct places.

This is why I have decided to fundraise for Mind, the mental health charity by taking the dry year challenge. This would mean that from January 1st 2019 to December 31st 2019, I won’t be touching a drop of alcohol. This is because our mental health is really important and the work this charity does is vital in supporting people with these conditions. They help them through the really tough stages in their lives when they feel they cant move on or see a way out.

I would be grateful for any donation, big or small, to my cause and I hope that more people can gain awareness of this great charity and the work they do.

If you would like to sponsor me, for payment after completion, would you please message me privately on either Facebook or via text and I will put you down for sponsorship.  

Thanks, Matt
