Why fundraise at school?

Young people are at the heart of what we do, and we want to make sure that everyone is talking about mental health.

There is a lot of evidence proving that students that engage in activities promoting their wellbeing, such as fundraising and social activities, help them to overcome challenges, build confidence and learn skills.

Fundraising can be fun, educational and rewarding! We want everyone to get involved - teachers, parents and students - so that much needed awareness and funds are raised, and YoungMinds can continue to lead the movement to make sure every young person gets the mental health support they need, when they need it, no matter what.
