Fundraise for YoungMinds

Taking part in fundraising on behalf of YoungMinds is a great way to have fun, raise vital funds and improve awareness of the importance of young people's mental health and emotional wellbeing.

Oscar Hand 1

I suffer with general anxiety disorder (GAD) which means I can feel an excessive, uncontrollable and often irrational worry about everyday things. This can make me act inappropriately, get angry, feel scared and worried a great deal of the time. I know what it is like to feel upset, trapped and alone with scary feelings. I want to help other people and their families who don't have help and understanding like me.”

  Oscar, aged 11 from Cambridge, did a sponsored bike ride to raise money for YoungMinds
