Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
We are a mental health charity-in-the-making based at Westminster Academy. Growing up we realised that people who suffer from mental health problems are stereotyped and do not receive the support that they need to fully cope with their problem.
Poor mental health can have important effects on the wider health and development of adolescents and is association with several health and social outcomes such as higher alcohol, tobacco and illicit substances use, adolescent pregnancy, school drop out and delinquent behaviours. There is growing consensus that healthy development during childhood and adolescence contributes to good mental health and can prevent mental health problems. We don't want this to happen to anybody alone.
We also noticed that mental health problems are common in young people because of the stress occurs while being a student. We are here to support children and young adults through any mental health issues,. We need the money for a website, leaflets & posters and also workshops. We would hugely appreciate any donations, no matter how small.
