Days Until The Walk Commences
What Is The Massive Mental Walk?
PH7 LIFE are raising money to put people through free depression and anxiety courses. We’re doing that by walking 111 miles, because 111 people take their lives each week. If we raise £111,000 we can potentially save 111 lives.
The walk takes place in the North West over every Saturday in August 2019 (except for Day 3 which is on a Sunday). Each day is a challenge, you can walk one day, two days or even the whole thing.
Mental health will never be solved alone, so we encourage people to enter by themselves and join the PH7 army, or as groups.
The groups can consist of family, friends or work teams. Either way, come and join the army walking all over mental health.

We’re platforming 111 people!
We want 111 people to be our ‘Massive Mental Walk’ ambassadors.
Why? Because we want people to stand up, tell us why mental health is important to them. Share their stories. Make people realise it’s OK to talk about their struggles, and that others are not alone.
What do you get for being one of our 111?
WHY WE’RE WALKING!
84 men and 27 women take their lives each week due to mental health problems.
PH7 LIFE are committed to ending stigma around mental health and helping to save as many lives as possible.
Our anxiety and depression courses have exceptional results. 83% of our clients achieve recovery from depression, and 94% of clients achieve recovery from anxiety after attending our course.
Each course is provided for free, but it costs PH7 £1000 to provide the course per person. Our ‘Massive MENtal Health Walk’ aims to raise awareness and funds.
Each £1000 raised could help save a life…
Sponsor A Walker
The massive mental walk is raising money to fund free places on the PH7 'Re-balance, thrive and revive' anxiety and depression program.
Each person costs PH7 £1000 to complete the course. The courses are offered at no cost to the person in need.
For £30 you can sponsor one of our 111 walkers.
Each of our walkers is aiming to raise £1000, which will see one more person through the PH7 program, and could potentially save a life.
Your £30 will go towards running male, female and mixed depression and anxiety groups.
It will also provide clothing, refreshments and go towards the cost of accommodation for your walker.

Meet Some Of Our 111
When you get so tired of letting people down that suicide seems like the only option.
I wanted to create 'The Massive Mental Walk' for two reasons. I've been that person in that place who feels that their journey is at an end, and the only option is to take your life. I want to connect with other people who have been affected by those thoughts in some way. I also want to raise money for our incredible anxiety and depression courses that we provide to free for the general public. I don't want to just 'talk' about mental health, I actually want to change it. That's why I'm walking!
I blame myself for my step father’s suicide.
I'm walking for my step father Paul. He died by suicide two years ago. I blame myself every day. I'm a mental health nurse, it's my job to help people and I couldn't help Paul. I want people to come together and talk more openly about mental health and their feelings. I want to walk because I want people to know I support them, and they can talk to me.
The loss of my identity nearly caused me to lose my life.
The loss of my identity nearly caused me to lose my lifeIt wasn't all that long ago that I stood on a bridge in my army uniform and I was ready to take my life. I'm grateful not to be in that place anymore, but I know how easy it is to get into. I don't want anyone to feel like I once did, and I truly believe that the community being created by 'the massive mental walk' will show people they're not alone and it's OK to talk
