Vitality London

Vitality London 10,000 – MAY 2019

Harley:

My name is Harley and I am running the London Vitality 10,000 this May to raise money and awareness for North Kent Mind. I have served as a Trustee for North Kent Mind since January 2014 and was elected as Chair of the Board in 2017. My first experience of our organisation was as a Student (in 2012). I am very pleased I had this experience as it challenged me to think about mental health differently. I am passionate about supporting those who may need a helping hand or a listening ear at times, whether by providing services or challenging stigma and discrimination within society, because I care about fairness and respect for all. Society seems mostly to forgive and accept those with physical illnesses, but those suffering with mental health issues or difficulties can be shunned and treated unfairly. This is simply not fair, and whilst things are improving, there is still a lot of work to do in this area.

Lisa:

Most people will know someone who has been affected by mental health issues. I feel very strongly that being able to access the right kind of help and support as quickly and easily as possible is crucial when facing such difficulties. As a volunteer counsellor for North Kent Mind, I feel very privileged to have been offered the opportunity to participate in Vitality London 10,000. Participating in a running event like this is something I have never done before as I only began running a few years ago. However, my admiration for the help and support the wide ranging services North Kent Mind offers has inspired me to take up this challenge. I believe this is a great opportunity to help ensure such services continue to get the funding they so desperately need. No one should have to face mental health problems alone and I hope that the money I raise will enable more people to access the Low Cost counselling service North Kent Mind offers and to achieve the help, support and respect they deserve.
