  • Event: Rockall Ho! 2005

Mental Health Media Council

All too often people with experience of mental distress are misunderstood, labelled and denied the opportunities that others take for granted. At Mental Health Media, we help those with first-hand experience to get across the real story about mental health and to lead the fight against discrimination.

Story

On 16 June 2005 the Rockall Ho! 2005 team successfully assaulted the world's remotest islet, capping four years' planning and fundraising with the triumphant raising of the flag of the Peoples' Republic of Rockall atop the sacred isle.

The adventure - sponsored by UK satire site The Rockall Times and supported by the voluntary team members - represented the ultimate North Atlantic challenge. You can find some splendid pictures and details of the conquest of Rockall right here:

And of course, it's all for charity. We're delighted to be supporting the MEdia initiative of Mental Health Media, full details of which are available here:

http://www.ldmedia.org.uk/ So, give it up for MEdia and Rockall Ho! 2005. You can make a donation right here and, if you're up to it, post a suitably droll comment to fanfare your generosity. Alternatively, if you prefer to send a cheque, make it payable to Mental Health Media and post it to: Attn: Marion Janner Mental Health Media 356 Holloway Road London N7 6PA Thanks for your support.
