This page is all about ‘Adventures of an Anxious Mind’ where I set myself physical challenges in order to raise money for Mind.
As well as raising money, ‘Adventures of an Anxious Mind’ has a number of other purposes:
EXERCISE – As we all know, exercise is an important part of trying to control anxiety and lift depression.
CHALLENGE – I push myself out of my comfort zone by tackling some of my anxious triggers. The challenges also motivate me, and give me a sense of purpose and ambition.
ADVENTURE – The challenges are fun and take me to places I have never been before both in the UK and around the world. There are so many exciting adventures to choose from, including Walking all the National Trails in the UK (and running parts of them); The Three Peaks Challenge; The Big Five Marathon in South Africa; and Climbing Kilimanjaro.
Here’s a couple of examples of how the money we raise can help.
could run their online peer support community Side By Side for an hour, helping people connect with others and feel less alone.
could help their Infoline answer calls, providing someone with vital support and information about help available for them.
could help them campaign for better mental health services from the Government, ensuring people get the support they need, as soon as they need it.
could pay the cost of one of their Infoline or Legal Line advisors for a whole day. Thanks to your gift they can maintain their advisors, ready to answer calls for support and help.
Follow me on social media to see how the challenges are going…..
