I'm inspired by the work of MQ: Transforming Mental Health.
Well, since the age of 13 I've been battling anxiety and depression to varying degrees of success. It hasn't been an easy battle, much like the Edinburgh Colour Vibe run probably won't be easy! But I've learned a lot along the way, not least of all that there's still a lot to learn about young people's mental health.
As a service user and The Mental Health Blogger, MQ's work really matters to me. There's certainly not enough work being done to find out about mental illness in young people, and it's refreshing to see a charity tackling that.
In short, I want to support MQ by raising money, so I'm going to do the Edinburgh 5k Colour Vibe run on September 23rd. Please help me help them by giving whatever you can using the 'Give Now' button. The more people that know about MQ: Transforming Mental Health, the greater their impact, so please also spread the word by sharing my page with your friends and family. Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot!
