Be a VITAL Hero and do something incredible.

VITAL are working hard to increase awareness of mental health and to reduce the stigma surrounding the illness. We are also working hard to provide services for those facing unseen battles and may not be considered 'ill enough' to get support from mental health services.

Low Mood, Depression and Anxiety Support

We would like to set up a service that provides short term, intensive advocacy and mentoring for those experiencing a crisis (perhaps their first) in relation to Low Mood, Depression and Anxiety. This service would be for those who are not receiving support of mental health services, and are under the care of their GP.

The Challenge

This challenge has been taken on by 2 brave souls to date who loved the challenge! 'Hard work but so rewarding, it focuses your mind to get out and the benefits to my emotional and physical health were amazing'

The 500/100 challenge is about completing 500 miles in 100 days. You can walk it, swim it, cycle it or run it! You can do it alone, as a team, as a work place... it doesn't matter how you do it, as long as you are raising awareness and raising funds!

The challenge will also be supported by the campaign #amileinmyshoes which helps others to recognise the daily struggles surrounding mental illness whilst raising VITAL funds.
