Mental Health is a huge issue in our society and that does not exclude young people. 1 in 6 young people aged 16-24 has symptoms of a common mental disorder such as depression or an anxiety disorder, which is why our London office will be supporting YoungMinds as their 2021 charity.
YoungMinds is a UK charity committed to improving the well-being and mental health of children and young people. Their mission is to make sure young people get the support they need, when they need it, no matter what.
They currently help young people to look after their mental health, they offer training and consultancy to professionals who work with children to make sure young people have adults around them who can help.
YoungMinds works closely with young people and families, campaign on many issues impacting young people and their mental health. Their activists advocate for political change and spread the message in schools, at events and online about how to look after your mental health.
They also provide a parent helpline, which offers free advice and support to any adult concerned about a young person's behaviour or mental health.
We are proud to be supporting this charity that is considerate and forward-thinking.
