A bit about why we are doing this event…
The Firefighters Charity #FirefightersCharity https://www.firefighterscharity.org.uk and raising awareness and reducing the stigma attached to #MentalHealth.
A message from the Charity….We understand the mental, physical and social burdens that can come from being a past or present member of the UK’s dedicated fire services community. So we rescue the rescuers and help them to recover their lives when they need it most.
A message about #MentalHealth…We all experience moments of stress, anxiety, panic, fear, loneliness and other such challenging feelings in our lives, it’s what makes us human. We are all also affected by different things in different ways; what may be water off one person’s back, may stick with another for a lifetime.
At The Fire Fighters Charity we understand this, but we also recognise that working in the fire services community brings with it its own unique challenges. As such, we know that many of us in this community experience similar periods in which our mental wellbeing is challenged, often for similar reasons.
The Firefighters Charity is planning on building a #MentalHealth “garden” at Harcombe House, you can view the PowerPoint presentation here https://thelongestride.co.uk/?attachment_id=2255
