I have been a Mindfulness practitioner for 15+ years. I wish to undertake the Youth Mindfulness one year training programme to become qualified to deliver workshops in local schools & communities.

My name is Donna Jamieson, I live in Glasgow with my partner and 3 great kids ! I have been a Mindfulness Practitioner for over 15 years.

I have been awarded a bursary place on the one year Youth Mindfulness Training programme which - when qualified - will give me the tools to teach an 8 week Mindfulness programme in communities and schools.

I work with Teen Parents and recently went on the NHS Mental First Aid course to develop my ability to support Young people in crisis. I have been moved to take my training further when I discover that 1 in 4 young people experience depression, that suicide is the leading cause of death for people under 35 and that Scotland's suicide rate is higher than any other part of the UK !

Govanhill Baths Community Trust have kindly offered to pay the deposit for my training - they will be re-opening in 2018 as a health & well being centre and wish to encorporate my skills in their programme - and the bursary place I have been offered reduces the fees by one third!

I am in deeply grateful for the assistance offered thus far. I am now hoping to raise enough funds to pay for the residential training fees and will self fund the course fees.

I have a shortfall of £1,000.

With your help I will be able to offer support to communities and individuals with Mindfulness skills from Sep 2017 onwards !
