The CAUSE Cha Cha Challenge
Friday, 11 March, 2016 to Thursday, 31 March, 2016, 09:00 - 17:00
Local charity CAUSE is inviting all dance lovers to take to floor in March to help step out the stigma of mental illness.
CAUSE is the only charity in Northern Ireland that supports families, friends and partners who has a loved one living with a serious mental illness.
In recent years there has been an increasing recognition of mental ill health as a major public health issue in Northern Ireland.
Mental health is now regarded as one of the four most significant causes of ill health and disability here. It is estimated that one in five people in Northern Ireland has a mental health problem at any one time. In addition, Northern Ireland has been noted to have higher levels of poor mental health than anywhere else in the UK or Ireland; for example, the prevalence of mental health problems is 25% higher in Northern Ireland compared with England.
In addition to all these challenges, mental health carers have to face the impact of stigma which results in them not seeking help or support.
So please get involved in this great CAUSE's Cha Cha Challenge by sparing a couple of minutes to cha cha cha and donating £1.
