This year, we're celebrating 25 years of AWARE! AWARE offers support, education and signposting services to help thousands living with depression, anxiety, and bipolar in Northern Ireland.

Our story began in 1996 in Derry/Londonderry when a small group of people came together with a shared vision to improve services for people with depression and bipolar disorder.

Since then, we've grown into an organisation extremely active in the quest for better mental health services and we're now recognised as one of the leading mental health charities in Northern Ireland.

To celebrate our 25 years, and to help us ensure that we are here for another 25, we are inviting you to take part in the ’AWARE 25 Challenge’!

What is the AWARE 25 Challenge?

The ‘AWARE 25 Challenge’ is any individual or group fundraising challenge in support of AWARE that incorporates the number 25. What you do is up to you! We have some examples for you. You could:

Run/Walk 5k a day for 25 days

Run 2.5 miles every day for 25 days

Host a Zoom quiz with 25 people

Go sober for 25 days

Practice 25 minutes of mindfulness

Or make up your own…the choice is yours!

Good luck!!

Any funds raised from the AWARE 25 Challenge will go directly towards helping people in Northern Ireland who are living with depression, anxiety and bipolar disorder. We really appreciate your support!
