YoungMinds are an incredible mental health charity who are "leading the fight for a future where all young minds are supported and empowered, whatever the challenges". We are facing an urgent mental health crisis. Now, more than ever, children and young people are reaching out for help with their mental health, but the help that they so desperately need is much too hard to find. YoungMinds are determined to ensure that all young people get the best possible mental health support. 

The charity have also set up a YoungMinds Crisis Messenger which is a text service that provides free, 24/7 support for those who are struggling. 

Additionally, they have set up a Parents Helpline which offers advice to parents and carers who are worried about a child or young persons mental health. 

I have personally witnessed the positive impact of the charity through my own struggles. However, I have also seen the lack of immediate support and help there is for young people and children facing mental health problems which is why I felt it was so important to support a charity that is fighting to change this.
