I will be doing a charity Tandem Sky Dive from 15,000 ft with Sky Dive North West on the 3rd of April 2021. I believe this to be an amazing way to raise money for an amazing charity and I hope you guys think so too!
Manchester Mind have been working for 30 years to support better mental health. As an independent charity they work hard to raise all their own funds to keep mental health services free for all. With that, Manchester Mind work to address the affects of poverty, insecurity and poor physical health on people's mental health; to help people to manage their lives and to make positive choices with skill and confidence.
This charity has a special place in my heart. Many of us have either been affected or know somebody that has affected by a new or pre existing mental health condition. During this time of yet another national lockdown, mental health in all ages can drastically plummet as the restrictions become heightened. During the first lockdown alone, studies showed that just over 3,000 adults in the UK were surveyed and a range of mental health factors were considered, including depression, loneliness, suicide attempts and self-harm. Studies also found suicidal thoughts increased from 8% to 10% and they were highest among young adults (18-29 years), rising from 12.5% to 14%.
This is an important time to create awareness, donate and support. Life isn't easy especially at the simplest of times. It is okay to take a step back and ask for help and most importantly know that there will always somebody there to help no matter the circumstances. Manchester Mind provide multiple services from listening to advice and even emergency food response.
Any donations make a real difference, enabling this charity to provide services to over 6500 adults and young people in Manchester. For every £1 donated Manchester Mind invest 15p to raise the next £1, to ensure continued help and services for those who need it the most.
Let's help make mental health a priority this year.
And thank you in advance for your kind donation.
