To prevent children and young people from becoming socially excluded due to mental ill health or emotional distress and to relieve the needs of those children and young people with mental ill health or emotional distress and assist them to integrate into society.
Remove the stigma attached to mental health
Make conversation about mental illness normal, supportive and therapeutic.
Promote social inclusion rather than feelings of isolation for young people with mental illness or emotional distress.
The first part of our strategy is to put on an annual music festival. The festival incorporates music. workshops and mental health charities/providers information stands.
Starting mid 2019 the charity will be providing Mental Health First Aider Training free of charge to schools and youth groups.
On the 18th of May we have 8 brave volunteers doing an extreme abseil. They will be descending 418ft down the outside of the Express Lifts Tower in Northampton to help raise money to help fund free Mental Health First Aid training for schools.
If you want to support them you can by clicking the donate button below.
We are looking for people who want to play an active role in changing the conversation about mental health. We would also love to hear about how music helps you with your own mental health.
