Space To Breathe - Keep The Mix's life-saving services running

Many young people are already struggling with mental health issues or complex home lives, which have been made even more challenging by the need to stay indoors, because of coronavirus. Missing the structure of school, university, or work and without access to the support of the youth and health services they rely on every day, many under-25s are at crisis point.

Parents and carers are under huge pressure and many don't know how to help, but The Mix understand and provide crucial support for young people and their families. We can listen, offer expert advice and connect young people to their peers.

"All I wanted was to die. I have no idea what I'm doing in my life... I just wanted it all to end. I don't know what I would have done tonight if I hadn't found you."

That's why our phone, text, web, social and counselling services are so vital. All of our support services are free, confidential and open to any young person who is struggling. We reach over 2.5 million young people each year and connect them to the right advice.

"School was the only stable thing in my life and now I'm worried because they've been closed. I've lost the only place I felt safe and I'm anxious about what's going to happen with my exams. Everything's changing too quickly and I don't know if I can cope."

When it feels like there's nowhere else to turn, The Mix are always here to listen and to talk.

Please donate to keep our life-saving services running and give young people a space to breathe and seek help.

£3 (the cost of a coffee) can help five young people get life-saving support.

£15 (the cost of a meal out) can provide a week of training for one of our helpline volunteers.

£30 (the price of a gym membership) will pay for our online group chats to be run for a day.

If you decide to share your contact details with us, we will send you a personal email to thank you for your kind donation.
