Our beloved son James (Jamie) took his own life on 9th February 2018, three weeks from his 37th birthday, after bravely battling for years with the agonies of mental illness.
THE JAMES MARLOW MEMORIAL FUND has been set up by his family to raise funds* to support Synergy Creative Community CIC, a mental health peer support group in Brighton, East Sussex. They take a creative approach to well-being and mental health by running weekly sessions of art, music, creative writing, cookery and mindfulness meditation, in a supportive and inclusive non-judgemental space.
James benefitted a great deal from these groups, attending many over the years since they started in 2009.
We have created this legacy in his name so that others can continue to feel supported and encouraged to express themselves and unlock their potentials in a safe, inclusive space. Synergy helps to break down barriers associated with mental illness, barriers that can result in people feeling excluded, isolated and very lonely.
