A local project which has been causing a stir in the community, as well as around the World is now urging businesses to get involved. 

The mental health awareness book; The Mental Health Struggle - From Agoraphobe to CEO is the first Tunbridge Wells project to be crowd funded on popular website Kickstarter. It has already had plenty of attention from the press and been featured on the 'most popular' page several times in less than a week. It has also been given recognition by some of the country's largest mental health charities such as Mind, Rethink and Sane.

The project itself is a collection of stories, pictures, poems and other work from those that have experienced mental health issues, or knows someone that has. It is set to be an inspirational and motivational book that helps raise awareness for mental health problems around the World.


Businesses in Tunbridge Wells and the surrounding area are being contacted to ask for help and contributions in any way possible. Whether it be pledging money to the project, offering a discounted service or product to pledgers, or perhaps offering something to those with mental health issues.

The great thing about getting involved as a local business is that it is excellent publicity, especially when the project is getting so much press attention as it is. Rebecca, the organiser of it all is born and bred in Tunbridge Wells, so knows that there are many people in the town that can help out. She will be talking on BBC Radio Kent on Monday 14th Janaury at 10am about the project, as well as the local involvement.

All businesses that do get involved with receive thanks in the book itself, as well as on the website and the Kickstarter page which reaches millions of people across the World. Not only is is great publicity however, but it shows that as a business you truly care about the community and the World we live in.

If you are a business that wants to get involved then check your e-mail inboxes as you may already have been invited! If not, then send an e-mail over to thementalhealthstruggle@gmail.com straight away.

The project funding date ends on the 2nd February (no money will come out unless the whole project is funded at the end date) and so time is running out.
