Major Gifts

Major gifts are a lifeline for children and young people with mental health problems and support us in carrying out our vital work

Major gifts

Sadly, just 0.7% of the NHS budget is specifically allocated to children and young people’s mental health. Services are unable to cope with demand and thousands of young people are not receiving the support they need.

YoungMinds is a unique charity making a massive difference:

  • 5,000 young people with experience of mental health problems work with us to make things better for their peers, and improve how mental health is treated in the press
  • Our Parents Helpline helps 12,500 parents a year worried about the mental health of their children. 1 in 3 parents call the Helpline a lifesaver
  • 1.5 million people use our online help and advice every year – that’s someone new every 20 seconds

You can help us do even more.

If you choose to make a major gift, we'll keep you up to date with regular reports, the opportunity to attend YoungMinds events and visit a project.

Thank you, because if it wasn’t for YoungMinds I wouldn’t be the person I am today. But most importantly I wouldn’t even be here today! You have given me a second chance at life and I am so thankful for it!

Support Our Work

We're leading the fight for a future where all young minds are supported and empowered, whatever the challenges.

I found YoungMinds, and it made me realise I wasn’t alone in the struggle. I could use my experiences to help others and fight for change.
