We're walking the world to fundraise for groundbreaking mental health research and initiatives
We are the University of York International Pathway College's Student Support team along with our fluffy mascot in the picture - Hank, we are taking on The Great York Walk. This is a challenge walking event that will help to transform mental health by raising funds for Mentally Fit York at the University of York. Mental ill-health doesn't discriminate and right now, mental health has never been more important as the social implications of coronavirus begin to unravel.
1 in 4 people will experience a mental health problem of some kind each year in England. So we're each pledging to walk 400 miles each to raise £400 for Mentally Fit York.
Please donate anything you can to help our target and improve mental health in York and beyond! :)
about mentally fit york
Our walk will be in aid of Mentally Fit York, which will promote good mental health on a local, national and international scale. Your support will be used to fund initiatives such as 24/7 mental health support for York students and research projects to further our understanding of mental health issues and the barriers to accessing support services. Your support may also go towards providing suicide prevention training, Mental Health Nursing Scholarships or it could contribute to a range of other initiatives which are decided by an expert panel of mental health and wellbeing researchers, practitioners and advocates.
