The Dan Rhodes Foundation

We raise funds to improve awareness of mental health

Charity Registration No. 1170177

Story

For far too long, mental health has been held in the shadows and has been a subject that people are unwilling to talk about. This is particularly prevalent in men who don’t want to appear weak or emotional. This needs to stop as more and more people are being affected by mental health issues. It is currently estimated that 1 in 4 people will be affected at some point in their lives and that the ratio is increasing. As someone you know will be affected, why does no one talk about it?Help us raise awareness and bring it out of the shadows.

I didn't know Dan Rhodes, but Dan was a friend of my friend Stuart Middleton. Dan sadly took his own life in 2014, after struggling with his own mental health. After losing Dan, Stuart then set himself a year of challenges to raise money for mental health charities, that resulted in him setting up the Dan Rhodes Foundation.

I have had my own struggles with mental wellbeing and want to support Stuart and the great work he is doing.

Thank you for reading
