We are excited to be working together with the Bupa UK Foundation over the next three years to help young people and their families access the information and resources they need to live mentally healthy lives.
The Bupa UK Foundation will be supporting Mind to develop a brand-new set of information resources designed with and for children and young people aged 11-25. The Bupa UK Foundation intend to fully fund Mind’s Children and Young People Information programme over the next three years with a donation.
Employees working at Bupa will also be taking on a variety of fundraising challenges for Mind and offering their skills to provide pro-bono support to the charity.
By 2022 we want to help 2.5 million young people and their families access the information they need to look after their mental health.
Alex Cole, Chair, Bupa UK Foundation, commented: “Mental health is just as important as physical health in helping people to feel better and stay well. Mind’s resources are written specifically for younger people in the language they use. The Bupa Foundation supports initiatives that provide meaningful and practical support for people – exactly like this. We want to help young people get the mental health support they need, when they need it.”
Paul Farmer, Chief Executive of Mind, said: “We know that young people experiencing mental health problems for the first time may struggle to know where to go for support. That’s why we are so thankful to the Bupa UK Foundation for funding this information to equip young people with the tools they need to better look after their mental health.” ensure young people can access high quality information when they need it most.”
