Birmingham Mind was established in 1962 and is a regional affiliate of the national charity Mind. BUDS has decided to support this charity as, each year, more than 250,000 people in the City of Birmingham experience mental health problems. Due to the myths and misunderstandings surrounding these experiences, they often face discrimination and struggle to get the help they need.
The benefits of exercise and friendship go far in improving mental health and come hand in hand with dance, therefore we feel Mind is such a fitting charity for BUDS!
We will be raising money in many ways including; socials, challenges, charity weeks, charity classes and our annual ball along with raising awareness via our multiple social media platforms. We could not be more excited for this partnership.
