One of my main mental health awareness goals for 2019 has been to hold an event.
I think so often it’s easy to focus on the negatives of mental illness that we forget about those out there that struggle, battle their own brains everyday but go on to help others.
I want to create an event that recognises those people, that recognises those one in a million professionals and that allows people to share their stories to offer hope to others.
I have been lucky enough to have been given a complimentary venue from the Bierkeller in Birmingham which is amazing seen as even Solihull and Birmingham Mental Health Foundation Trust woukd not offer their own venue/function room for this event, telling me that that had yearly financial targets to hit…. (Shocking I know, this is the mental health trust for the whole of solihull and Birmingham!)
There will be many more costs however and while my usual projects are funded from my own pocket with the occasional very kind donation, this project I will need some support with.
Unfortunately it doesn’t fit the criteria for any finding that I have looked at so I’m looking for your help!
This event will benefit not only those in Birmingham or those that attend but I hope as I have found through my other projects those further afield that read about it, hear about it to show that you CAN overcome, you CAN achieve and that there is hope.
I would really appreciate any help and 100% of all donations will go towards making this event happen!
