Support our new campaign – ‘I am the 3 in 4’
In the last 12 months, we had over 120 telephone calls and emails from people who knew a family member, friend or colleague that was struggling with their mental health.
We want to raise £1500 to fund a support worker for 6 months who will focus on working with families and friends. This will enable us to put a peer support network in place and train some ‘champions’ who can volunteer their time down the line to support this service.
We need your help to make this possible:
To spread the message, take a selfie or write why you are supporting us and post it out with the hashtag #3in4. Ask your friends to do the same.
