My Black Dog

We are delighted to announce our charity for the 2022 event will be My Black Dog.

My Black Dog was founded on the motto “talk to someone who gets it”. We want to connect people who share lived experiences to provide an empathetic, non-judgemental space where everybody understands how it feels to experience mental health struggles.

We know that talking about your mental health is hard. Really hard, and coping with it alone is tough, and it is constant. It is not just when you are at a crisis point but also when you are in the early stages: weeks, months, maybe even years before that point. You’re surviving, but you aren’t quite living. Talking with friends and family may seem overwhelming, you might think going to the doctor isn’t necessary, perhaps you don’t think it’s serious enough to talk to a counsellor.

Talk to someone who gets it.
