I'm raising funds for mental health and wellbeing. I hope that you will support me by donating to Mind HK. Your donations will be matched by Barclays, pound for pound.

My Story

Hello everyone,   

In two weeks, I will be embarking on a 4-day trek through the Himalayas in the Himachal Pradesh region of Northern India with a team of Barclays Asia Pacific colleagues to collectively raise awareness and funds for mental health and wellbeing.   

Mental health and wellbeing has been an issue close to my heart. You might think of depression and anxiety, but it is also dementia and insomnia. ADHD and autism. Eating disorders and substance abuse. There are no official statistics on legal professionals, but I don’t know a lawyer who does not have at least one of the above.   

According to the WHO, mental disorders affect 1 in 4 people worldwide. That’s 450 million people. Of this 450 million, 2 out of 3 never seek professional help, for fear of stigma and discrimination. That’s 300 million people.   

Mental disorders can be prevented. They can be treated. They can be overcome.   

Yet there is an awareness gap, a legislative gap, and a funding gap.   

I ask that you help me with this. Help me raise funds that will go towards bridging these gaps. 

Barclays will be matching your donations, pound for pound, up to GBP 1,000, per fundraiser. All your donations will go towards the wonderful work that Mind HK does for mental health and wellbeing in Hong Kong. 

I thank you on behalf of all the children and adults who will benefit from your generosity.   

Thank you,
