Paving the Way for Youth Mental Health Research
One in four young people will develop a mental illness, with half of those people having lifelong issues. In the past, treatment could be haphazard. Today, the University’s Brain and Mind Centre is developing personalised treatments and online-access projects that allow young people to reach out for help early. Early intervention can make a huge difference.
Mental health is generally underfunded by governments, so every dollar you give will make a huge difference in the research that our Brain and Mind Centre is able to do to help improve the lives of so many young people living with mental health disorders.
Join us on 11 September from 6pm at the Lower Ground Theatre at Queen Mary Building as we get together to fundraise for this important cause! There'll be free pizza, prizes, and BINGO to celebrate what we can achieve when we all come together to help young people living with mental health disorders.
Can't make it on the night? That's OK! Every gift counts, no matter the size, so you can make your gift here. Don't forget to share this link with your friends and family as we pave the way for a better mental health for young people.
