the next generation will thrive
to enable young people to access support and mental health professionals, when and wherever they need it
we're building a platform that will transform how young people access support and professional mental health services
young people are our future. we believe that we have a responsibility to protect their mental wellbeing
Young people do not have access to the support and professional help they need, when they need it.
In fact, they have been found to be one of the loneliest and isolated age groups. There are thousands of young people who go without having a trusted adult to speak with about problems and challenges they may be facing.
Young people are also waiting too long for and being turned away from professional mental health services.
Only 55% of young people are confident that they know where they can go to find help if they were concerned about their mental health and wellbeing, and only 34% are confident that they would actually get the help they need. (Mental Health Foundation)
Two thirds of young people could not find support when they first needed it. (Young Minds)
A poll of more than 5,000 people aged between 18 and 72 found that one in four young people felt isolated. (YouGov)
75% of young people agreed that they had to manage their mental health on their own when they couldn’t find help elsewhere but only 17% felt confident in their ability to do this. (Young Minds)
31 percent of 18 to 24-year-olds said they felt lonely often or all the time, compared to 17 per cent of over 55s. (YouGov)
75% of young people seeking mental health support become more unwell while waiting for treatment. (Young Minds)

but first, we need just one second, please
