Broken bones get casts, runny noses, tissues. What about the brain?
We know now that 1 in 4 people will be affected by a mental disorder. However, what we don’t know is that for every person diagnosed, only £8 is spent on research per year. To put this into context, the figure for cancer is £178 per person. It’s not enough.
Understanding and treatment for mental illness needs to be improved.
MQ is the revolutionary charity looking to do this by funding much-needed scientific research. Knowledge is power in the fight against mental illness.
How can YOU help?
Claire Eastham, award winning blogger and bestselling author of the book We’re All Mad Here, is seeking to raise £1,000 for the charity during ‘Mental Health Awareness Week.’ It’s time we all gave a f**k about mental health. So dig deep, donate to MQ and give research the boost it needs.
Brain, Body – Same Respect
