Get involved

There are loads of ways you can get involved with future Walk a Mile events, get involved on our social wall, register and come along to one of our events, brave the wonders of modern technology and join us on Walk a Virtual mile or you can pull on your boots and organise your own event.

However you get involved, you’ll be helping us challenge the stigma that comes with mental health. Together we can make things better.

Event organiser

Chris Young is an ex social worker who suers from Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). On April 6th 2011, he began a tour of the UK with the aim to circumnavigate our lovely island on foot, relying solely on the kindness of other people for food, water, shelter and compassion. His walk has been hugely successful in achieving his goal of encouraging open, honest conversation and reducing the stigma of mental ill health‘one conversation at a time’.
