The team at Mental Health North East would like to give a big vote of thanks to the students of St Chads, Durham University for choosing to support MHNE as their charity of the year. The students organised a well-attended launch event which looked at how mental ill health affects us all and in particular young people. Following the launch a spectacular fashion show – all organised and executed by the students themselves – was held to raise further funds. Our representatives at the show were particularly impressed by the professionalism, enthusiasm and commitment of the students.

A special thanks to Izzy, Hetty and Philippa for heading the event and for the courtesy shown to the MHNE team throughout.
