Footsteps Walking With You
A new charity in Martlesham to support young people aged 11-25 who are struggling with mental health difficulties launches two exciting fundraising events.
Footsteps Walking with You will offer affordable counselling with professional counsellors for youngsters and their families when little support is available elsewhere. A study by the Mental Health Foundation found that three out of four mental health problems are established by age 24, yet 70% of children and adolescents who experience mental health problems have not had appropriate interventions at a sufficiently early age.
Christine Pinder, from the charity, said:
“We believe that early intervention is key and reaps all sorts of benefits, not only in the short term but also has life-long benefits for good mental health and wellbeing.”
Footsteps Walking with You have two fundraising events in September to raise awareness and invite everyone to support the charity by attending Open Garden at Dairy Farm, Brightwell on Sunday 10th September from 2-5pm. Go along and enjoy the gardens along with tea and cakes. Admission is £4 and under 16’s are free.
Multicultural banquet at St Michael’s Church, Martlesham Heath on Saturday 16th September 4-6pm. Tickets are £20 per adult and under 16’s are free, an advance purchase is advised.
