The first of our nominated charities for 2017 was YoungMinds, which is the UK’s leading charity championing the wellbeing and mental health of young people.
The charity exists so that young people have the strongest possible voice in improving their mental health. They strive to make sure everything, from Government policy to practice in schools and services, is driven by young people’s experiences and aspirations.
They also support parents to help their children through difficult times, equip professionals to provide the best possible support to the young people that they work with, and they empower young people to change their world.
