I have chosen to raise money for a Mental Health charity.
Mental health has such a wide spectrum from alcohol/drug misuse, self-harm, eating disorders to depression – the list goes on. There are some fantastic organisations out there working on these issues with people, and I would love to raise money for them all. However, I have decided to support and raise money for Inspire (the new name for Niamh, the Northern Ireland Association for Mental Health) as they work throughout the island of Ireland. It is a charity and social enterprise based in North of Ireland focusing on promoting wellbeing for all through mental health, intellectual/learning disability and professional wellbeing services locally, across the island of Ireland and the rest of the United Kingdom.
It has been super difficult to choose just one charity however, I felt Inspire has a holistic approach to working with people with poor mental health and are proactive in their method. If you would like to find out more about Inspire please follow the link to:
I hope by raising money for Inspire, I can create awareness of what is available to people of all ages and also hopefully break down a lot of those barriers that are attached to Mental Health illnesses. I would appreciate any support big or small for Inspire, if you would like to sponsor me, you can via the logo.
Thank you for taking the time to read about an issue that is very close to my heart!
