Counselling Directory first started after we saw how difficult it was for a friend of ours to get the support they needed from a counsellor, and since then we have worked hard to ensure we try to prevent this happening to others, and which is why we are so passionate about helping people to lead mentally healthier lives.
We have always been a huge supporter of the Mental Health Foundation and the work they do, which is why we chose to get involved and raise some funds for them so they can continue their great work.
The two brave members of the team will be taking part in a Tandem Skydive jump, which means that thankfully they will be harnessed to a professional parachutist who knows when to pull that all important cord.
Once they have managed to will themselves out of the aircraft, they will then be freefalling through the air (without the parachute deployed) for several thousand feet at speed of around 120mph! If you are asking yourself why anyone in his or her right mind would do this, here is why:
- Just £3 a month can help the Mental Health Foundation to produce important guides on how to look after your mental health.
- Just £10 a month can help to set up training workshops and peer support in a young persons club.
- £25 per month helps the foundation to work with ex-service personal on a horticultural project.
- £45 a month helps the foundation to run a course for young people with learning disabilities.
Please join us in wishing Customer Service Assistant Jennifer Froggatt and Press Officer Emma Hilton the best of luck for their jump, and if you happen to be in Maidstone on Saturday afternoon, look to the skies and give them a wave!
