#Youth2022 - Catalytic Youth Mental Health Campaign
Mental health services are in a poorer state than they were four years ago with clinicians struggling to care for the sickest patients, a top doctor says, raising serious doubts about pledges to dramatically improve the service in the face of increasing demand.
Through our accredited community organisations listed below, we have seen the direct ways young people with mental health concerns can be supported in a way which meets their immediate needs. These frontline community organisations are working to provide professional, direct help along with ongoing community support for young people.
Choose from one of the following charities and 100% of your donation will go to providing their vital mental health services to our young people:
- Youthline - Nationwide call centre
- Youth In Transition - Wrap-around support in Rodney, Auckland
- AMPSS101 - Mental health and housing needs in Timaru
- Life Matters Suicide Prevention - Dunedin
"Donations received ensure we can continue to help our young people create a life worth living, and provide them with the ongoing wrap-around support they and their families need".
Tina Jones, Co-Founder and Director of Youth in Transition
