Jess's story

I started attending the Young Parent’s Together programme run by the Mental Health Foundation for mums, dads and their children. These classes helped me immeasurably...I have decided to take part in a trek along the Great Wall of China in October 2018 in order to raise money for the Mental Health Foundation!
