Walking into Wellbeing – Lisa’s Half Marathon!

I am the Talking Therapies Manager for Mind in West Essex and I will be walking/jogging 13 miles on 15 May in aid of Mental Health Awareness Week.

Mental ill health is the leading cause of illness in the workplace and exercise is key to emotional and mental wellbeing.

People who know my fitness level will know this will be challenging for me!!

I started volunteering for Mind in West Essex back in 2011 then joined the staff team in 2012.

I was drawn to Mind in West Essex after my father's ill health and wanted to give something back to the charity that helped me and my family through a very difficult period.

I would be hugely grateful if you could support me to help others struggling with mental ill health. If you feel able to sponsor me, you can do this at:
