WE ALL ASKED - IS SHE OUT OF HER MIND?

Is she out of her MIND?

Bryony Sexton, from Bowers Partnership, asked herself the question – “am I out of my mind”?

 She said “Skydiving has always been on my bucket list but I didn’t think I would ever have the guts to do it. I wanted to fundraise for Mind – the Mental Health Charity. I originally thought I would do a cake sale or something small like that, but I knew if I did something big then I would hopefully raise a lot more money.”

“Before I knew it I had booked a date for the skydive and I must say, if you’re thinking of doing it then do it” Bryony says it was the most crazy but incredible experience. “I was a bundle of nerves the morning of the dive, but the minute I put on my Mind T-Shirt I remembered how important it was for me to do this.”

“When I was free-falling 12,000 feet from the sky, surprisingly, all my nerves vanished, there was no feeling like it! You can tell by my smile how much I was loving it!” 

Bryony’s jump has raised £670 so the Mind charity so far.

“There is so much stigma attached to mental health which is frustrating because it’s so common yet we are so ashamed to talk about it. It can be so mentally draining battling with your own mind every day.”

Mind is a brilliant charity who offer amazing support. Visit their website, call their helpline 0300 123 3393, text 86463 or email info@mind.org.uk for more info.
