Every parent wants the best for their child and to support them to grow into healthy, happy adults - but sadly, 850,000 children and young people in the UK experience mental health problems. That’s three in every classroom.
A young person's mental health can affect the whole family and leave parents feeling anxious and helpless. That's where YoungMinds can help. We work to improve the emotional wellbeing and mental health of children and young people by directly listening to their experiences and campaigning for change.
Within any company, many employees will be parents or young people themselves. A partnership with YoungMinds would not only bring your company multiple benefits, but will allow you to demonstrate a commitment to issues directly affecting your employees.
By choosing YoungMinds as your next charity partner, you will be able to make a tangible impact to children and young people who are suffering from mental health problems. Whether you choose to support us through staff fundraising, annual donations or multi-year investments, you can rest assured knowing that your support will make a real difference right here, right now.
Whether or not your company has worked with a charity before, we’ll make it easy for you to get involved. Your dedicated account manager will work with you to provide your company and colleagues with fun and inventive fundraising ideas, engaging newsletters, real life stories, photos and videos for use in internal communications and we’ll work with you to produce exciting joint press & PR opportunities.
As a small charity we often have need for volunteers using their professional skills to help us – it could be contributing to our IT strategy, our marketing plans, or even support for our annual mail out. If your company is interested in volunteering we will work with you to match our needs with interested volunteers.
We can work with you to help raise awareness of mental health and YoungMinds within your company to help support your employees better understand mental health and mental health problems. Working with YoungMinds means you can directly help both parents of children and young people, and young people working within the company who might be struggling to feel less alone.
