Join our fight for a new era for young people's mental health

The young people's mental health crisis is happening now. It's real and it's urgent. Despite greater public awareness and some new funding since 2015, it remains far too difficult for young people to get the help they need.

But right now, the NHS is putting together a Long Term Plan which will decide where to invest more money over the next decade. This is the opportunity we've been waiting for.

Young people and their families can't carry on like this for the next ten years. This is our chance, let's make it count. 

YoungMinds is #FightingFor a new era for young people’s mental health, where help is available to every young person who reaches out.

Please sign the petition to join our fight.

Our petition calls for an ambitious new funding settlement matched by a fresh approach to how we support young people with emerging needs.

This means:

  • Faster access to mental health services for those who need it, from a system equipped to meet growing need
  • New ways for young people to get help early, before they require specialist support
