David Ashton will be running the Surrey half marathon on Sunday 12th March to raise money for Status Employment.
“For a long time I thought that mental health problems would stop me from ever really living.
A few years ago that changed, Status Employment aims to help people living with mental illness find work but for me they did so much more. They helped me to believe I could overcome my mental health difficulties and helped me to find belief in myself.
Through Status I now work for a service user run charity called Hear Us, supporting individuals living with mental illness and giving a voice to the mental health community.
I still suffer with mental illness but thanks to Status and Hear Us, I can use my experiences to help others, I feel as though my life has meaning and I have hope for the future.”
