Just as our bodies can become unwell, people’s minds can become emotionally unwell too and this may be more common than you think, with 3 children in every classroom experiencing a mental health problem at any given time.
In recognising the significance of early intervention and prevention in mental health, the Youth in Mind initiative is specifically targeted to respond to the needs of children and young people.
Youth in Mind prioritise two main areas. Firstly, they work closely with schools to raise awareness of mental health issues and provide education and support to students, parents, teachers and governors. Secondly, they offer an innovative range of therapeutic services that can be tailored to meet both school, community and individual needs.
