Deconstructing the system report
Young people's voices on mental health, society and inequality.
Young people are at the sharp end of a mental health crisis that gets worse every day. With a global pandemic, political instability, cultural shifts and global crises, life for young people has become more unpredictable and difficult.
Our ‘Deconstructing the system’ report brings together the voices of tens of thousands of young people who shared their experiences of the world around them. It shines a light on the young people’s mental health crisis, and reveals just how serious this crisis is.
The perspectives of these young people have shown us exactly what areas need to change. Now we want to make that change a reality.
AJEDI Report 2022
With a view to being transparent and wanting to be held accountable for our commitments, we are publishing our Anti-racism, Justice, Equity and Inclusion (AJEDI) Action Plan.
We want the young people we are here for, our volunteers, supporters, partners, and potential future colleagues to know what our aspirations are as an organisation. This is a roadmap for the changes we need to make and our plan for the key work needed now to work towards getting there.
We are committed to the work we detailed in the plan but we also know that this on its own is not enough. We will continue to talk to and learn from each other internally, and from our peers externally. We will continue to challenge ourselves, remain true to our values and centre everything we do around who is most at harm.
We have provided a plain text version of our report. Our action plan is also compatible with text-to-speak applications.
This report was published in July 2022.
Our impact in 2022-23
Every year we report on the progress we’ve made and how we’ve achieved what we set out to do. With our new strategy 'You Matter', we showcase some of the great work we do to make sure we're on track to achieve our mission.
Our online impact report is interactive so that you can really see how we are working towards making sure that all young people can get the mental health support they need, when they need it, no matter what.
