NJC thought it was a fantastic opportunity to get involved and help raise awareness and donations for the Mental Health Foundation.
A range of events have been scheduled across the month, including 5 a side, a raffle and dress down Friday, to raise not only money for charity but also to raise awareness on mental health.
Good mental health is fundamental to thriving in life. It is the essence of who we are and how we experience the world. Yet, compared to physical health, so little is commonly known about mental ill health and how to prevent it. That must change. The Mental Health Foundation is the UK’s charity for everyone’s mental health. With prevention at the heart of what they do, they aim to find and address the sources of mental health problems. We must make the same progress for the health of our minds that we have achieved for the health of our bodies. And when we do, we will look back and think that this was our time’s greatest contribution to human flourishing. The Mental Health Foundation is a UK charity that relies on public donations and grant funding to deliver and campaign for good mental health for all.
