This year we are proud to support Action Mental Health
Each year, Power NI staff choose a registered charity to support with a range of company-wide fundraising initiatives, allowing our staff to give back to the local community. This year we chose to support Action Mental Health.
Founded in 1963, Action Mental Health (AMH) is a local charity which works to enhance the quality of life and the employability of people with mental health needs or a learning disability in Northern Ireland.
Action Mental Health changes the lives of those living with mental ill health and promotes resilience and well-being to future generations. Sadly, one in five adults in Northern Ireland will show signs of a mental illness. Action Mental Health provide many opportunities to those living with mental health, encouraging them to adopt healthier lifestyles and to widen their social networks.
Staff at Power NI have pledged to support the charity in a number of ways during the year, and are driven and motivated to make as much money as possible for a very worthy cause.
Eight staff from Power NI took to heights of 10,000ft and at speeds of up to 120mph to raise £5,332 for Action Mental Health. Watch our video to find out more.
