In November 2009, Mandy Lindsay sadly completed suicide at the age of 24. After her death, her family set up the Super Mandy fund to raise money for us to help other young adults with depression in her home area of South Lanarkshire.
Since 2009, Mandy Lindsay’s family and friends have been working incredibly hard to raise funds for Action on Depression.They have climbed the three highest peaks in the UK and swum, run and cycled many miles. They packed people’s shopping, sung at a karaoke night, they organise a hugely succesful annual race night and much more to raise money.
At the time of writing (October 2013) they have raised over £49,000 and fundraising is still continuing. NHS Lanarkshire and North and South Lanarkshire councils have also added to this figure.
If you are a young adult in need of help or support you can find a large amount of information and advice on our Look OK Feel Crap website, including an online community and monthly web chats. If you are in need of urgent help please use Breathing Space or Samaritans on the numbers below.
