“When I couldn’t talk to my parents or teachers about how sad and scared I was feeling, my Benjamin Foundation Support Worker was there to listen and help me to feel happy again.” Through the darkness of lockdown, anxiety and worries in young people rocketed and the impact on the mental health of so many children and young people has been huge. 67% of young people surveyed by Young Minds believed that the pandemic will have a long-term negative effect on their mental health. That's why we have launched our Summer of Hope appeal. Throughout Covid-19, our support for young people continued online and in local communities. Each week 150 young people accessed our emotional wellbeing support services. In the last year this equates to 7,500 emotional wellbeing support sessions to improve mental health, increase self-esteem and to help young people to finally feel understood. We know that there are many more young people who now need our help. With your support through our Summer of Hope appeal, they can learn to manage their emotions, build their confidence and become more resilient to better cope with the challenges that life brings. By donating today, you can help young people to overcome adversity and thrive into the future. Thank you to Summer of Hope Headline Sponsors Clapham and Collinge Solicitors.
