No5 Chambers is delighted to support Mental Health Research UK's ‘Blooming Monday’ campaign

Thu, 16 Jan 2014

No5 Chambers is delighted to again support 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.  We are proud that the charity was co-founded in 2008 by one of our own barristers, Laura Davidson, along with Professor Clair Chilvers and the late John Grace QC. 

On Monday 20th January 2014, MHRUK urges everyone to wear bright clothes.  Voluntary £2 donations are encouraged by texting BLOO22 to 70070.
