Mind Your Head

A woman from the Shetlands whose mother, father and brother all committed suicide has set up a charity to raise awareness of mental health and reduce the stigma surrounding suicide. Shona Manson, whose brother Gary killed himself when he was 31 asked for donations for mental health at his funeral. Before long she had already received £10,000 and decided to set up an ongoing campaign rather than make a one-off donation. Mind Your Head aims to enhance mental-health care in the Shetlands and has held a number of different fund-raising events.
