Raise a virtual glass for CAUSE Raise a virtual glass of your tinsel tipple - toast our 25th birthday - donate your drink to CAUSE! These are tough times for everyone and, like us, you’re probably pining for your usual weekend get-together - whether that’s a pint at the pub with a mate, cocktails (or mocktails) with colleagues, or a bottle of wine shared over dinner. But this Christmas you can still do something fab with your Friday night tab… Caring for someone who may have a complex mental illness can be intense and harrowing, producing much stress and trauma for all concerned. We are now working remotely - continuing to provide our support services - improving mental health carers own mental health and well- being, some of whom have suffered mental illness themselves as a direct result of their caring role. Mental illness is a major public health issue here in NI and is the single largest cause of ill health and disability - having higher levels of mental ill health than any other region in the UK and is only going to deteriorate further during CORVID 19 and our isolation. CAUSE has never been needed more! Just a few pounds – the price of your fave Friday night tipple – will help us be there for our community at this exceptionally challenging time. Whether it’s a pint (£3), G&T (£5) or bottle of wine (£10), each virtual drink added to our bar adds up to more essential support for our community. So join us in raising a virtual glass - and in raising funds - to help people caring for someone with a complex mental illness navigate the next few weeks and months. Thank you for your support! I’ll raise a virtual glass and donate…cheers to CAUSE!
