We support vulnerable adults to manage and improve mental wellbeing.


Hey, thanks for clicking through.   

Last couple of years have been........tough....exhausting......mentally a challenge for all of us.   The scars of anguish and anxiety from pandemics, cost of living crisis and wars in Europe will impact all for years and years to come.  The mental burn of uncertainties and trying to keep head above the water  is taking it's toll.  Across all age groups, and particularly the youth and future youth need our support to stop the cycle and find peace of mind for all our futures.  

In 2012 we (the UK) had the prosperity of riding the wave of positivity (the Queen jumping with Bond into an Olympic opening, Wiggo winning the Tour, good gigs and music).  In the last decade we've move to a point where we've had austerity, real-terms cuts in spending powers, political turmoil, BLM, Trump, Brexit, Covid and now a war in Europe, inflation, energy crisis and climate change starting to bite.   An objection, rebellion and protest of the 1970's is more like an arrest for peaceful protest to just say "this isn't right".  It appears there's a lacking of light at the end of the tunnel.   So if the state won't support, it's up to us to support each other.   

Mental health in the 2020's has become more critical and the support to those who need to turn for help, need our help. 

Everyone needs to be able to truthfully say "yes, I'm happy" or "yes, I'm OK" and not hide their personal battles.   

I am supporting Mind Nottinghamshire because I want to do something to support both mental health and my own doorstep.   I want to raise money to support Mind as a national charity which has a local impact in Nottinghamshire.   Their work supports all weather it being a trained person at the end of a phone line to say "hey, you're OK, we value you" or detailed research and reporting on the national mood and what can be done.
