    Situation

    The number of young people with poor mental health has increased as a result of the cost of living crisis. Reduced spending power has put strain on households and families leading to missed opportunities, increased stress and more uncertainty about the future. This has led to a sustained rise in demand across all mental health services including The Door's mentoring programme which at present cannot meet the level of need.

    Solution

    The Door's mentoring programme matches young people with a trusted adult either in person or over the phone as a safe space and non-judgemental listening ear. Mentors act as positive role models, meeting young people where they are at and journeying with them as they are empowered to move forwards in their lives. The Door will use this funding to reduce our current waiting times and be able to mentor more young people sooner.
