We are SO PROUD of everyone who takes the time to raise awareness, and money, to help people who suffer with mental illness and want to say a MASSIVE thank you to 'JessFest' who have raised over 6K for Tyneside and Northumberland Mind.
Jess Cameron who was on track to rebuild her world after suffering from depression and trying to take her own life after jumping from a multi storey carpark, passed away in August last year. After spending six months in hospital, being bedbound at home and undergoing a string of operations to rebuild the bones in her legs, she was ready to go home and start her life again. Jess died after falling and hitting her head which caused a swelling on her brain, starving it of oxygen.
Now her friends are on a drive to raise money for Tyneside and Northumberland Mind whilst highlighting the need for more support for people with mental health issues such as depression. We want to thank all those involved in fundraising for us, we couldn't give the support we do without your help.
