The Journey Begins
Friends of Hammersmith and Fulham Mind, Jo and Fiona, have flown out to Spain to begin a 100k walk from Sarria to Santiago de Compostela to raise funds for a new child internet safety programme.
The project, which is part of our larger effort to help educate children and schools in preventing mental health difficulties, will look into what the effect of seeing certain images has on a young person’s sense of depression.
With access to the internet and exposure to certain information and pictures becoming broader and harder to moderate, it’s important that we keep working to protect children from these risks. Pilot studies like this are essential for furthering our knowledge in this area and helping to educate others in web safety.
If you’d like to help Fiona and Jo in raising funds for this exciting new cause, please visit their page to donate any amount you’re able to. Also, don’t forget to keep up to date on their journey through our blog and Instagram feed.
Good luck Jo and Fiona!
