Help Mend Minds - Raise Funds for Mental Health Research!

 Mental illness will effect one in five people and has a devestating impact on effected individuals, their family and friends. Current treatments for many illnesses like schizophrenia, depression and bipolar disorder are not effective for many people. NEW TREATMENTS are urgently needed! You can help mend minds. The 2010 de Castella run is raising funds for Mental Health Research at MAPrc.  Make a tax deductible donation when you enter - then make your own fund raising page at Everyday Hero so your friends and family can sponsor you. Together we can make a difference!
