Supporting youth mental health
Mind Jersey won't give up until everyone experiencing a mental health problem gets both support and respect. Mind Jersey provide advice and support to empower people, of all ages and stages of life, who may be experiencing the effects of a mental health problem.
Money raised from RBC Race for the Kids supports Mind Jersey's Youthful Minds group. Youthful Minds are a voluntary participation group of young people aged between 11-25 who are working to tackle stigma associated with mental health for children and young people in Jersey. The group has been set up to ensure that young people experiencing mental health problems get their voices heard within the community and mental health services.
The group also aims to raise awareness about mental health and mental illness, and to give their thoughts and ideas to other mental health services for children and young people in Jersey. The Youthful Minds have a passion to promote and protect good mental health for all.
