This October Matthew and I will be walking and running to raise money for the University of York’s Mentally Fit York Campaign. Matthew will be walking 10km of The Great York Walk and the following week I will be attempting to run the Yorkshire 10 mile race.
Mentally Fit York promotes good mental health both at the University and across the city of York. Your support will be used to fund initiatives such as mental health first aid, Mental Health Nursing Scholarships and research projects looking to further our understanding of mental health issues and the barriers to accessing support services.
If we hit our target we will be able to provide training for 10 people to receive mental health first aid training. We all know people who have been affected either directly or indirectly by mental health problems so please donate what you can to help us make this happen!
