A warm hello to anyone reading this e-mail. Mental Illness is at Pandemic stage throughout our Country. Suicide rates are growing by the day. I have created Angling in Mind UK to reach out to anyone in the Angling world who are suffering from mental illness and also introduce fishing as a new hobby to others who may want to explore fishing to help them in a positive way. I have suffered with mental health myself on and off for many years. Fishing has given me an outlet where I feel safe secure and happy. If one person out of thousands can benefit from Angling in Mind UK it is worth the time and effort getting it off the ground. A few of the aims initially are to make people feel they are not alone, there are others in the same position who understand. People on the current private group on facebook are already starting to strike up friendships and talking, which we hope will lead to them enjoy many happy hours fishing together. We are already gaining some traction, with my club agreeing to get behind this and a tackle shop willing to help with selling merchandise. Going forward, our plan is to roll this initiative out further afield. And to get both anglers and non Anglers talking and building friendships via forums for different counties to enable them to go fishing together. Our long term aim is to make this a success for those involved, with leagues and competitions being set up nationally for anglers that fit into this scheme. Kind regards to everyone, Wayne Bridger Founder of Angling in Mind UK.
