No5 supports Mental Health Research UK’s ‘Blooming Monday’ campaign
No5 Chambers has announced that it is again supporting Mental Health Research UK’s ‘Blooming Monday’ depression awareness campaign. MHRUK is the UK’s first charity dedicated to funding research into the causes of mental illness in order to develop better treatments with fewer side effects.
The charity was co-founded in 2008 by one of No5’s own barristers, Laura Davidson, along with Prof Clair Chilvers and the late John Grace QC.
MHRUK is urging everyone to wear bright clothes on 20 January 2014. Voluntary £2 donations are encouraged by texting BLOO22 to 70070.
