You can help us change the world Join our movement

We believe that creating change has to start with young people. That’s why we’re building a movement for a world where all young people get the mental health support they need, when they need it, no matter what.

Even if you’re worried you don’t know what you can offer, start your journey with us and see where it leads. There are loads of ways you can get involved, so explore this page and see what suits you. 

The change we want to see

We know there is so much that needs to change to create a future where no young person feels alone with their mental health. Here are some of the things that we’re fighting for.

  • We're fighting for all young people to be able to get the mental health support they need from the NHS without a long wait. 
  • We're fighting for schools to focus more on mental health, with less pressure on academic achievement. 
  • We're fighting for there to be somewhere in every local community that a young person can go for early support when they first need it.
  • We're fighting for the Government to recognise and address the big societal issues that are leading to rising mental health problems in young people.
  • We're fighting for the online world to be a safer, kinder place for young people to spend time.
