The first Nailing Mental Health event will be held on:
Date: Sunday 2nd April 2017, Time: 10am – 6:30pm
Location: InterContinental Hotel, O2, London SE10 0TW
6078 people lost their battle with mental illness in 2015. This is 6078 too many.
Treat yourself to a shape and polish with a difference for just £5, and join us in our Guiness world record attempt of painting 6078 people’s nails in 8 hours. 350 manicurists will be at the event, treating your nails to a shape and paint in green glitter to represent the colour of the mental health ribbon. Manly manicures are also available.
Stephanie Staunton, a Celebrity Manicurist, has set-up Nailing Mental Health after suffering from mental health issues herself. Stephanie set up the Nailing Mental Health event to help raise awareness of the rising problem of mental health.
The plan is to raise £30k for Mind charity, Samaritans as well as for Nailing Mental Health.
Once Nailing Mental Health achieves its registered charity status, we will be helping people first hand; paying for private counselling or interim therapy while they wait the 12-18 weeks currently required on the NHS. This delay can and does have devastating consequences.
How the money will be spent:
£20k to Mind
£5k to Samaritans
£5k to NMH – this is what we need to achieve our charity status in year 1.
Mind provides research, counselling, advice and support and to help bridge the gap while on the waiting lists for free counselling and therapy. Contact Mind:
