Your fundraising efforts will help hundreds of young people and adults receive the support they need to help them manage mental health conditions including anxiety, depression, PTSD, bipolar, borderline personality disorder, psychosis, Schizophrenia and self-harm. Covid-19 has deeply heightened many of our clients’ anxiety levels, with a high proportion now experiencing deteriorating mental and physical health compounded by challenges including food and benefit issues, loneliness, bereavement, housing problems, anti-social residents and isolation. We’ve adapted our services to provide telephone and online support so we can help people stay connected with the community and signpost to other key local services if needed. However, we anticipate to see a 70% reduction in fundraised income this year due to cancelled fundraising events. That's why we need the support of local companies & businesses now more than ever. By supporting Mental Health Resource, you'll be helping us reach more clients who are isolated from the community at this challenging time. Specifically: £100 could provide a weekly peer support telephone conference for 30 people. £200 could provide face to face mental health support for 10 people. £500 could provide weekly face to face support for 2 people for 3 months. With your support we can continue to reach people like Kate; “I was bullied at school and told off for crying so I learned to hide my feelings. I started to have identity issues and became anxious as a result. Mental Health Resource has given me a safe space to come and it makes my life so much better because I can spend time with other people, which I used to find hard to do.” What can we do to support our partnership?
