5th-20th October 2019
What is the challenge?
Following its success in 2018, Walk the Talk is back and will take place 5 – 20th October aiming to get people walking and talking about mental health, helping to reduce the stigma attached to mental illness whilst raising funds for Mental Health UK.
70 colleagues will be experiencing an incredible 5 day trek in Cambodia to Angkor Wat PLUS colleagues will be organising their own local walks or signing up to an event here in the UK.
Colleagues voted overwhelmingly that fundraising this year should focus on providing young people with better access to support with mental health issues. It’s an area of work that Mental Health UK is keen to develop, especially when it comes to helping young people navigate challenging key stages in life – like leaving school, finding a job or going on to further education.
Join Walk the Talk and together, we will make a difference.
Mental Health UK
Poor mental health affects more people every year than cancer or heart disease – every year, one in four of us in the UK is affected by a mental health problem.
Living with a mental health condition can affect many aspects of daily life, from your physical health to your home, your work and managing money. By supporting Mental Health UK, you can help us change this.
Mental Health UK brings together four national mental health charities working across the UK.
We have 40 years' experience of working to improve life for people affected by mental illness in England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland. We were originally set up as a single UK-wide organisation in the 1970s, and we are now working together once again as Mental Health UK.
We are working together to raise funds so that more people across the UK can access support for their own mental health and for friends and family members who are affected by mental illness.
