Darren is launching The Art & Mind Dinner in memory of his sister Leanne, who sadly lost her long and exhaustive fight with depression in 2013.
Depression is one of the many types of mental health issues that affect one in four people in England every year.
‘We want to help those who are struggling to feel comfortable seeking support, and to realise that they aren’t alone.’
The Leanne Baker Trust is working to provide vital support and guidance to those suffering from mental health illnesses. The charity is proud to partner with Support2Recovery and give grants towards their work promoting positive mental health.
Support2Recovery Create Space is a charity based in Kirklees, which offers a range of workshops, courses and activities to help improve the mental health and well-being of people in the community. It provides a safe, creative space for individuals to come together, share their feelings and support each other.
Men’s health is in trouble.
All around the world, fathers, brothers and friends face a health crisis that isn’t being talked about.
Men are dying too young, before their time and for no good reason.
The Movember Foundation is the only global charity focused solely on men’s health. We raise funds that deliver innovative, breakthrough research and support programs to enable men to live happier, healthier, longer lives.
Awareness and fundraising activities are run year-round by the foundation, with the annual Movember campaign in November being globally recognised for its fun, disruptive approach to fundraising and getting men to take action for their health.
Since 2003, we’ve created a men’s health movement of over 5 million supporters across the world. Through the moustaches grown and the conversations generated, we’ve helped fund 1,200 innovative men’s health projects across more than 20 countries focusing on prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention.
