I am excited to share with you this video that my girls Charlotte and Samantha did for the wonderful Charity SANE.
Who is SANE?
SANE is a UK-wide charity working to improve quality of life for people affected by mental illness. They have three main objectives linked to our aims and outcomes:
1. to raise awareness and combat stigma about mental illness, educating and campaigning to improve mental health service.
2. to provide care and emotional support for people with mental health problems, their families and carers as well as information for other organisations and the public.
3. to initiate research into the causes and treatments of serious mental illness such as schizophrenia and depression and the psychological and social impact of mental illness.
What do SANE offer?
SANE offer lots of different services of support, including their text care service, a helpline, available from 4.30 – 10.30pm every evening, and a 24 hour support forum available 24 hours a day to name just a few.
On the website, SANE also have a resources section, where they share people’s videos, pictures, drawings, paintings, audios, and much more, I think this is a great way for people to express themselves and share their story.
