Why I’m doing Red January!

Monday 2nd Jan
I’ve decided to do red jan this year as I struggle a lot with my mental health, as well as work to support others! I have my own non profit organisation, called cardsofcalm, where i send free care packages and cards to people struggling with their mental health as well as putting cards which include quotes and helplines on bridges for people in crisis. I started this in 2020 after my mental health took a turn for the worse. I began self harming at 13 due to the overwhelming pressures of school and a not so fab home life. I had my first panic attack at the age of 10, and each year things seemed to get worse and worse. Due to the covid pandemic, it was impossible to receive support for mental health, especially under the age of 18 due to the lack of funding. The suicide rates rose rapidly and i felt an overwhelming urge to want to help. 2 years on, the passion is still the same. I’ve fought with my mental health for nearly 8 years, it’s time to take back control and raise money to help as many people as possible get the help and support they deserve.
