Our Goal

We are fundraising for a new service for children and young people in the Harrogate District.

Our goal is to include:

  • Counselling sessions for young people aged 11 to 18
  • Group mental health support in local schools
  • Drawing and Talking interventions for younger, primary school aged children
  • Workshops and resources to support parents and carers of young people struggling with their mental health
Every child deserves the chance to grow, learn, and thrive in a supportive environment. By launching a dedicated mental health service for children and young people, we’re not just addressing a critical need; we’re investing in the future well-being of our communities. Together, let’s ensure every young mind has the resources and support they need to flourish.

The Scale of the Problem

CAMHS rejected my referral and put me on a two-year waiting list so I had to self-study for my GCSEs… I believe that if someone had intervened when I was still in school I wouldn’t have the chronic mental health problems that I will now probably battle for the rest of my life.
