Fitness In Mind wants to educate others and raise mental health awareness across Essex!

What Are Our Aims
With the funds we raise we hope to run as many FREE Mental Health awareness courses as possible and offer them to grass roots sports clubs and social activity groups throughout Essex to train their coaches and leaders in mental health awareness, giving everyone the tools to improve their users wellbeing, make their environment a safe place that reinforces mental wellbeing and makes their group more accessible to everyone.
With the current goal of £5000 we have predict that we can run a minimum of 10 course of 15 people but we will be looking at stretching the costs and saving money where possible so we can to lay on more courses

Not only this but we will use the funds raise to convince other funding bodies such as the local government to match fund DOUBLING the amount of courses we can run so the more we raise the more impact we can make!


Why Should I Care?
With the rise of social media and mental health awareness there is a lot of stigma and even fear mongering around mental health, this has been escalated by the frequent reminded of all the negative impacts mental health can have on someones life but...

What if we can break down the barriers and stigmas around this?
What if we can give you the confidence to be able to approach a friend, college or loved one? 
What if we can give you the tools to better understand your own mental wellbeing to improve YOUR quality of life?
What if what you learn can save someones life with the littlest of effort?

There are tons of ways you can help and heres how!
