Team Mental Health Foundation
As a nursing student, I am acutly aware of the need for awareness and support services for those struggling with their mental health. I believe it's time we stand up and advocate for improvement in mental health access and de-stigmatisation of mental illness.
I'm running the Wellington Round the Bays 2020 half marathon to raise money for the Mental Health Foundation. I'm doing this because more than 50% of New Zealanders will experience a mental health problem in their lifetime, and I don’t want them to face it on their own.
Your donation will help the Mental Health Foundation to provide people with free information, resources and campaigns covering the A-Z of mental health and wellbeing topics. It will also help them advocate for helpful and hopeful policies and services for people living with mental illness.
I am aiming to raise $500 – please show your support and donate to my page!
