Rachel Pratt Mental health effects everyone - myself included.

MAC-UK have a vision to provide mental health support to young people in environments they are comfortable in, from people they trust, using alternative methods. Across London, they help hundreds by taking mental health support to the streets. This innovative approach is allowing them to engage with young, excluded groups who are often detached from more traditional mental health programmes.

I want to raise money to help MAC-UK continue providing and expanding their work, and I also want to raise awareness of their approach. Let's get people talking not only about acceptance of mental health, but also about what else we can be doing to make sure EVERYONE has access to effective support.

One of my mental health outlets is running... so what better way to raise money and awareness than by running Hackney Half Marathon! I'll be taking on 13.1 miles, and any support you can provide me and MAC-UK would make the 2+ hours a little easier to get through!

Every penny helps, and I want to thank you all in advance for your support! Rachel Pratt
