We support children and young people with their mental health and wellbeing

We know that one in ten children have a diagnosable mental health condition that’s roughly three children in every classroom.

It can be tough growing up. Many thousands of young people go through periods of mental ill-health.

When this happens, it can be difficult for them to make and keep friends, manage at school and feel good about themselves.

It can also be bewildering for their families. Many children may not be diagnosed as having mental health issues, but lack confidence and feel unhappy much of the time.

No child should be left to cope with mental ill-health alone.

We are here for children and young people when they need us to listen to them, support them, counsel them, guide them and nurture them.

How we help here at Anxious Minds, we believe in early intervention, before a child or young persons mental health becomes a problem.

We run many services supporting young people’s emotional health and wellbeing, from one-to-one counselling to group work.

We aim to provide more counselling services to children across the North East. With your support, we can do more :

£20 will pay for a counselling session

£40 will pay for a support group

£150 will pay for a 6-week anxiety course for 10 children



They need every little bit of help we can offer, please get involved and save the children.

NO CHILD SHOULD BE PUT ON A WAITING LIST
