£5m grant to improve youth mental health awarded to YoungMinds

YoungMinds, the youth mental health charity, has received a £5m grant to support the design and delivery of a new strategy for young people’s mental health.

The grant, from the Paul Hamlyn Foundation, will enable YoungMinds to reach and engage more young people experiencing disadvantage, inequality and injustice, all considered key contributors to mental health problems.

Laura Bunt, chief executive of YoungMinds, said: “Every day we hear from young people who need support for their mental health but are unable to get it. They are growing up in an increasingly unstable world, with the impact of the pandemic, the cost-of-living crisis and global instability all taking a toll on their mental health, and help is too hard to find.

“We are determined to turn this situation around, working side by side with young people, and a grant as large and long-term as this gives us confidence to take the bold and decisive steps we believe are needed.”
