Hello and thank you for taking the time out to read my story. I've decide to do something to make a difference. Adoption and mental health have been a big part of my life and I wish to be able to raise funds for Adoption UK and Young Minds Trust so support can be requirred by those who need it.
I found out I was adopted very late in life and it came as a massive shock to me. Unfortunately, not everyone has a happy ending but the support from AdoptionUK I received was invaluable.
Mental health is also especially important to me as it has touched my life. I'm a Mental Health First Aider and wish to raise the profile of this service so that more MHFAs are available in an educational setting to support those most at need. Mental health issues are so prevalent with young people today and many are suffering quietly.
