Support us to train teachers in Mental Health First Aid

By Phil Bridges

Three children in every classroom have a mental health problem and 50% of mental illnesses start before age 14.

You can be instrumental in helping our social enterprise The Mind Map assist the record levels of young people struggling due to issues including academic pressure, social media, bullying and poverty.

We are Youth Mental Health First Aid instructors and will train 80 plus teachers to spot the signs and symptoms of mental ill health, listen and signpost towards support. In doing so we can speed up a young person’s recovery and stop a mental health issue from getting worse.

Schools and youth centres cannot always afford Mental Health First Aid training. By donating, you will help us subsidise the training for them.

Often the first point of call for young people, it is vital those in charge are equipped with basic Mental Health First Aid skills.

There are amazing rewards for pledgers!
