Description


Gordon Allan - "On Boxing Day 2015 my wife Sally took her own life. With the benefit of hindsight, I believe this was due to mental health issues she had been masking from her family, friends and colleagues. It was a week before we knew Sally had taken her own life and during that time as a missing person Sally's story got a lot of media attention, you may remember it. When it was finally confirmed Sally had taken her own life the family wanted to raise mental health awareness and set up a fundraising campaign for Mind and Tyneside and Northumberland Mind. Some of the funds have been used by Tyneside and Northumberland Mind to develop the Sally Allan Fund project."

The Sally Allan Fund was developed by Tyneside and Northumberland Mind to help reduce stigma and raise awareness of mental health problems to create better mental health in the north east.
Our vision is to provide a free 1 hour presentation with three aims:
- To give people the knowledge about common mental health problems so that they feel more self-assured in identifying them in others and starting a conversation about it.

- To provide information so that individuals feel more confident and empowered to speak up about their experiences and to ask for the advice, support and treatment that they need.

- To recognise the importance of self-care for the prevention of mental health problems and relapse prevention. In conjunction with the presentation, each attendee will receive a booklet full of tips and guidance on self-care and information on local and national services for support
