YMCA Trinity Group #IAmWhole Appeal 2017

=10.5pt#IAMWHOLE is an anti-stigma mental health campaign developed in partnership with the NHS and YMCA, the world’s largest youth charity.

Mental health difficulties can affect any child or young person, across all spectrums of society. Currently in the UK, 850,000 children and young people have a diagnosed mental health difficulty. This is equivalent to three children in every classroom in the country.

This stigma exacerbates the negative effects of living with mental health difficulties, and most significantly, it prevents them from speaking out and seeking help, meaning many children and young people suffer in silence.

Despite the considerable numbers of children and young people affected and increased public awareness and recognition, three quarters of children and young people still report that there is a stigma associated with experiencing mental health difficulties.
 

The campaign, launched nationally on World Mental Health Day in October 2016, aims to give a voice to the thousands of young people who have long suffered in silence.

Every penny from the money you raise or donate will go towards supporting the work we do around mental health in the county so we can help more young people
