A team from the Cassel Hospital – including staff, a patient and friends of the Cassel – are taking part in this year’s Ealing Half Marathon on Sunday 30th September. The team of seven is set to run the 13.1 miles to raise money and awareness for the Cassel Hospital Charitable Trust.
Dr Julia Blazdell works for the Cassel and is a Trustee of the Charitable Trust. She is also an ex-patient of the Cassel. Julia said: “I am fortunate to have experienced the Cassel from many different sides. Firstly, as a patient, then as a trainer and service user consultant and finally, as a Trustee of the Cassel Hospital Charitable Trust. Our mission in the Charitable Trust is geared towards promoting the effective care and treatment of adults and young people with personality disorders and complex trauma. These are aspects of mental healthcare that are notoriously stigmatised and underfunded. So, the arduous hours of training aside, I am delighted to be running in a bid to raise money for the Cassel Hospital Charitable Trust.”
