Support us Major gifts

Major gifts are a lifeline for children and young people with mental health problems.

Your support means a lot

Sadly, just 0.7% of the NHS budget is specifically allocated to children and young people’s mental health. Services are unable to cope with demand and thousands of young people are not receiving the support they need.

YoungMinds is a unique charity making a massive difference:

  • 5,000 young people with experience of mental health problems work with us to make things better for their peers, and improve how mental health is treated in the press
  • Our Parents Helpline helps 12,500 parents a year worried about the mental health of their children. 1 in 3 parents call the Helpline a lifesaver
  • 1.5 million people use our online help and advice every year – that’s someone new every 20 seconds

You can help us do even more.

If you choose to make a major gift, we'll keep you up to date with regular reports, the opportunity to attend YoungMinds events and visit a project. 

If you would like to have a conversation about how you might be able to help, please email Michelle at [email protected].

“I just wanted to thank everyone who works at YoungMinds. I can’t thank you enough really, I am super grateful you have helped me get through hell and back several times and honestly just really are truly inspiring and you really have helped me to stay positive.”
