‘Dorset Mind Your Head’
There are currently VERY FEW youth services specifically designed to support Young People’s mental health in Dorset. UK research says that 1 in 10 young people are in desperate need of help. Our research tells us this number is higher.
What are we doing about it?
In order to support young people aged 11 to 25 in the local area with mental health problems we are developing a number of education programmes and support options across Dorset.
How much will it cost?
We estimate the cost of setting up these services and running them for up to five years to be in excess of £1,117,000.
‘Dorset Mind Your Head’ will include:
**UPDATE: We plan to launch befriending and counselling by the end of 2017 – thank you to everyone who has helped us get there**
Please help us provide this important mental health education and support for young people by fundraising, volunteering with us or supporting us with grants.
