Pendle Lease are working in support of YoungMinds to improve the young lives affected by Mental Health. And here is how you can help...
Who are YoungMinds?
YoungMinds is a charity set up to work with young people and their families who suffer from mental health, in any shape or form. Their Vision: "a future where all young minds are supported and empowered, whatever the challenges." Their Mission: "[to] make sure all young people get the best possible support and have the resilience to overcome life's challenges."
"The crisis in children and young people's mental health is real and it is urgent. More children and young people than ever before are reaching out for help with their mental health. But for those who take that brave step, help is much too hard to find."
YoungMinds not only work with the young people, but also their families who are working hard to support them. They have a dedicated Parents Helpline where parents can call or email for support. The support can be anything from questions regarding a child's behvaiour or mental and emotional well-being, to seeking advice on what to say to the GP during a visit.
On top of that, YoungMinds work with 4,500 school staff and thousands of primary schools across the country to provide free teaching resources, tips and advice for help children at school. They have worked with over 1,000 young people to help "persuade the government and social media companies to do more on internet safety."
The amazing work is endless and Pendle Lease really urge you to take a read through their website if you are in need of any support at all or would like to find out more about how you can help!
