I’m running the Istanbul marathon on the 8th November 2020. It is going to be a great fun and exciting experience, it’s the only marathon in the world that crosses two continents during one race!
I am running this race for ‘Neds Fund’, a charity close to my heart. Male suicide and mental health is a huge issue that is not addressed as much as it should be, mental health is an illness that any one can suffer.
We must be encouraging young adults to talk more and be more open about their feelings. The term ‘it’s ok not to be ok’ needs to be repeated time and time again. If we can get more young adults to speak during difficult times we can at least try to help them get through it, and find a way to cope with these thoughts and providing support to make them better.
By providing these children and adults with activities and opportunities for them to express them selves will help them find a route through life they thought was impossible. Everyone person is different and has different hopes and dreams, it’s so important to give everyone the same chance in life.
