Mental health needs to be spoken about and we hope that students feel more comfortable in talking about mental health with their friends and staff.
Better to talk than feel alone. The world will be open enough to help others out and get others talking. Let’s get rid of the stigma that surrounds Mental Health and get it to be accepted as an illness like Physical Health
Our Pledge to Brighter Berkshire is to provide FREE space to help promote BB with a pop up busk over the weekend of the 6th May.
We really believe in supporting community enterprises as the community is at the heart of what we stand for as a shopping centre and we want to help more people in understanding mental health and also showcase the great work of Brighter Berkshire.

I want to help people with mental health by giving advice or anything I can do to help. I have mental health myself and I feel it helps if I help others and I feel I give good advice and would do well working in this sector.
What difference do you hope to make?
It will help others to deal with their problems
I pledge to promote Brighter Berkshire during my book events in Reading and also on my social media platform. I suffered from depression on and off and recently published a book about my experience. Generally we need to raise more awareness of mental health issues in order to do away with the stigma still attached it. I hope that there is more understanding that mental illness is an illness just like any other and what sufferers need is treatment and support instead of discrimination.
