We were shocked and horrified to hear that according to a recent OSMI Mental Health in Tech survey that 51% of people felt they had suffered with a mental health issue and 71% of people felt their productivity was affected by a mental health issue.
We have decided to take on the challenge of completing the Marathon Relay for Aware NI in order to play a small part in helping to combat the stigma around mental health, as well as raising much-needed funds for this very worthwhile charity.
AWARE is the only charity in Northern Ireland working exclusively for people with depression and bipolar disorder. AWARE has an established network of 23 support groups in rural and urban areas across the country, which are run by trained volunteers. Support groups welcome people with depression & bipolar disorder as well as carers for people with the illness. AWARE deliver mental health & well being programmes into communities, schools, colleges, universities & workplaces across Northern Ireland. For more information visit aware-ni.org
