Taylor is Raising Money For MIND, Can You Help And Donate?

Today we guest post a post for Taylor, She is raising money for MIND. She would be grateful for any donations, no matter how small. This means more people will get access to mental health help and advice, ensuring that they are not suffering alone.

One in four people in the world will be affected by mental or neurological disorders at some point in their lives. Around 450 million people currently suffer from such conditions, placing mental disorders among the leading causes of ill-health and disability worldwide. When I was 16 my doctor diagnosed me with depression and anxiety. I hate it and it is just horrible but I'm lucky enough to have such a supportive family and great friends who all help me. Some people aren't that lucky. That's why I'm running a 8 miles Tough Mudder on 17th September 2016 for the charity MIND (Mental Health) As I believe everyone should have access to the support they need.
