Our family has raised funds for YoungMinds since 2018 when my beautiful daughter Eloise died by suicide. While we are pleased to have been able to raise money for such a good cause, that has been secondary to being able to look back on what a lovely young woman our daughter was, and to hear stories about her from other people who loved her.
Adam Land
We chose YoungMinds because as mothers we were becoming increasingly aware of the pandemic toll on our young people and we wanted to support a charity that was working to provide help and assistance immediately to young people and their families.
