For the past year Write Minds has been delivering creative writing and arts workshops to individuals affected by self harm, suicide and mental health difficulties. With growing demand we have seen the benefit this work has had on these people but now we need your help!
Unfortunately we have been unsuccessful in our latest funding bid, whilt we are determined to keep searching for this funding in order to grow our services and help more people, we don't want to stop our work which has become such a huge part of our participants' lives. Therefore, we are raising money in order to continue our project for the remainder of this year. We will continue to support young people in our region and plan to expand this to offer our services to adults.
In recent years we have seen a 70% increase in young people attending A&E for self harm and not all respond to traditional methods of therapy. Our project aims to give these individuals a voice and a platform to share their experiences through workshops and events. The bravery that has been shown this year cannot be allowed to be pushed aside so we are asking for even small donations to help this work continue and grow.
