Donation To Young Minds
Laurella Mama Charity Of The Year
Small businesses may be small, but we are mighty! Here at Laurella Mama we believe that giving back to the community and making a difference to the lives of others is imperative and each year we work HARD to fundraise and to raise awareness. For the year 2021 we have chosen to support 'Young Minds' and we would love your support in doing so...
Imagine feeling this hopeless, this desperate, this lonely. Imagine the courage it takes to tell someone and to ask for help. Imagine the devastation when, having reached out, the support you need just isn't there.
Thousands of young people living in the UK don't need to imagine - this is their reality.
We live in a country where the number of young people presenting at A&E with urgent mental health needs has tripled in the last ten years, where a quarter of young women have a diagnosable mental health problem and where suicide is the single biggest killer of boys and young men.
And these figures do not yet factor in the devastating impact of the coronavirus pandemic and the tsunami of mental health struggles we anticipate as a result.
The crisis in young people's mental health is well publicised. But behind each and every one of these statistics is a real life - a young person who urgently needs help. Far, far too often, these young people are simply not getting that help. And for many, it is already too late.
Through the fantastic work of Young Minds, changes are being made and lives are being saved.
