As many of you will know, I recently went back to university to study Events Management in Edinburgh. As part of my course work myself and my events group will be hosting a “Night Of The Arts”, in the form of a variety show and an exhibition, on April 4th at The Biscuit Factory in aid of Health In Mind. You can get tickets for £15 here: ticketsource.co.uk/elephantevents
Health in Mind is a Scottish charity that provides a wide range of services to support people with their mental health. They’ve been on the go since 1982 and have achieved some incredible things that they can tell you all about on the night! They have a strong focus on positive mental health and wellbeing which is, as you know, such an important thing to focus on. It’s important so support charities through fundraising events because the services they provide can be very expensive and the support they receive from statutory bodies can be minimal.
Our aim in choosing this charity was to raise awareness of Health In Mind, but also to raise awareness of positive mental health and wellbeing, especially for young people who can feel so alone in times of crisis. It’s incredibly vital that we make young people aware of the different places they can turn to because it can be hard to open up to family and friends at such a young age.
