We are thrilled that Telegraph readers donated over £182,736 to us through the paper's 2015/16 Christmas appeal. Thank you so much to everyone who donated to help us support more people affected by mental illness, and thank you to the Telegraph journalists who wrote about our work and issues relating to mental illness so powerfully.
Their articles about mental health for the appeal included:
- an interview with our chair, Philippa Lowe, about the difficulties her son faced trying to gain the right diagnosis for mental illness: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/wellbeing/health-advice/why-it-took-my-son-eight-years-to-be-diagnosed-with-schizophreni/
- an interview with our Ambassador Jonny Benjamin, http://www.telegraph.co.uk/men/health/i-was-saved-from-suicide-but-not-from-suicidal-thoughts/
- Telegraph journalist Bryony Gordon writing about her experience of depression and OCD http://www.telegraph.co.uk/wellbeing/mood-and-mind/bryony-gordon-i-only-got-through-christmas-thanks-to-antidepress/
