In recognition of Mental Health Awareness Week, during May we’ll be asking our supporters to carry an item of their choosing for 24 hours to represent the invisible burden that people with mental health difficulties carry with them every single day.

The Carry the Burden Challenge aims to raise awareness of mental health difficulties, as well as raising vital funds for Mind in Bradford so that we can continue to support people with mental health difficulties.
