1 in 4 people are affected by mental illness…Mental illness affects people in different ways – sometimes its more obvious, and sometimes people can suffer from it without anyone knowing. The best starting point is to break the taboo of mental illness, and to get people talking about it.
Why not consider getting involved in some fundraising events to raise awareness of mental illness and how people with mental health issues are treated? There are tonnes of charities you could volunteer for, but if you’re stuck for what to do, check out Rethink’s website – they’ve got plenty of fundraising events to look forward to; from marathons, to bike rides, to parachute jumping!
