Written by Olivia Osborne, level 4 BSc Psychology student
Hello Everyone, I am Olivia Osborne and I am currently in my first year of studying with Staffordshire University on the BSc Psychology degree course.
This march I will be running on behalf of my university, 27 miles in 27 days in solidarity of the 27% of students who report a mental health problem whilst at University.
More students are experiencing mental health than ever before. The number of students reporting a mental health problem is five times greater today than it was 10 years ago.
Any student taking part in the 27 27 challenge wants to send a clear message; It’s time to take our mental health seriously, and won’t give up until everyone with a mental health problem gets the support and respect they deserve.
Any Donation given will be gratefully appreciated! My target began at £100.00 however, with the support I have already received I have now (01.02.21) reached £534.00. So, with high hopes, I aim to reach £1000.00!
Please join this journey with me by donating via the QR code or by visiting my fundraising page (https://givepenny.com/oliviaosborne_27_27)
Thank you in advance!
