This week is Mental Health Awareness Week and the theme is kindness
As well as being kind to others, it is so important to be kind to yourself. Getting out for some exercise every day can make a huge difference to your wellbeing.
So If you haven't already, please sign up to our virtual event 'Miles for Mental Health' and challenge yourself to run, walk or jog the distance of a marathon over a month starting from today.
That is 26.2 miles over 30 days to get outside, raise awareness and raise funds so we can support more people that need it.
Every journey counts
Every penny you raise for us will help empower those severely affected by mental illness.
Highlighting our Hidden Heroes
