Actor Fry backs day for MIND
7:50am Tuesday 18th February 2014 in News
Research carried out by the mental health charity Mind has shown that more than two-thirds of full time workers in Yorkshire are most likely to be hungover on a Monday.
The figures come as the charity prepares for its new national fundraising day named Happy Monday on March 10, which aims to raise awareness on mental health issues.
Its president actor and writer Stephen Fry (pictured) has urged people to get involved by having fun on the week’s least popular day – by hosting their own fundraising events and spending quality time with family, friends and colleagues. Money raised will help Mind to continue to provide vital services so people experiencing a mental health problem have somewhere to turn for advice and support. Mr Fry said: “It’s a delightful excuse to spend time with friends and loved ones, or to tempt colleagues away from their desks, to raise vital funds for the one in four people who experience a mental health problem every year.’’
