About Young Minds:
[*]YoungMinds is the UK charity leading the fight for children and young people’s mental health
[*]An estimated 3 children in every classroom have a diagnosable mental health problem, and many more go through difficult times
[*]When young people reach out for support, it can be really difficult to get
[*]Alongside parents, professionals and young people, YoungMinds is fighting for a world where young people get the right mental health support when they need it, and are given the skills to cope with life, whatever the challenges
An even greater cause for this charity is promoting mental health awareness among children and young people, a topic that concerns every child and young adult everywhere. Sadly, suicide is the no.2 cause of young adult deaths today. Very shocking to know especially when you have children of your own.
