One Mans Mountain Mera Peak Appeal.
Promoting Positive Schizophrenia.
Schizophrenia is a very destructive condition. Recovery is often thought as 'near' impossible. A very high percentage of those diagnosed with schizophrenia are unable to work or live life without torment due to the demoralising and destructive symptoms. The low expectancy of recovery, the mistreatment and management of symptoms and the stigma and discrimination towards those who are diagnosed can be just as destructive as the disease itself.
Stuart Baker-Brown, a campaigner and activist for greater understanding and treatment towards schizophrenia was diagnosed with the disease in 1996. For many years he has promoted his own positive recovery to help inspire and offer hope to all those who share his diagnosis.
Mera Peak Challenge.
In October 2008, Stuart will visit Nepal and attempt to get to the summit of Mera Peak 6500m. Mera Peak is very achievable for 'strong trekkers' and the capabilities of summiting without experienced mountaineering skills are high. Stuart has visited Nepal on several occasions and completed his first trek to Everest Base Camp in 2003. His achievements and story of recovery has been covered in the media.
We Need Your Support.
In order for Stuart Baker-Brown to get to Mera Peak he needs to raise £3000. Stuart hopes that his summit will help to inspire the 51 million people around the world who are diagnosed with schizophrenia to reach their own potential recovery in life. Stuart's own achievements and recovery has already helped many. Please donate generously and support Stuart Baker-Brown’s attempt to reach even 'greater heights' and send a very positive message of 'hope' to all those who share his diagnosis.
Please Donate Generously. You can make a donation via the One Mans Mountain website or contact Stuart Baker-Brown directly at-15 Acreman Street, Cerne Abbas, Dorchester, Dorset, DT2 7JX. UK. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
