Youngminds Event

On Monday 19th June YoungMinds, our Charity of the Year, hosted an event at office in The Shard to introduce its two new major campaigns: WiseUp and Always.

Wise Up is a campaign calling for a change in government policy to re-balance the education system and ensure schools prioritise the wellbeing of their students alongside academic achievement. For the Always campaign, YoungMinds have joined forces with the National Autistic Society to push for stronger rights to protect young people living in mental health hospitals and their families when they need it most.

The event provided a fantastic opportunity to hear more about the charity’s current activity with some very powerful speeches from TV Presenter Sean Fletcher, Gus O’Donnell and two YoungMinds Youth Activists.
