The Mix is raising funds to support young people to have a safe anonymous space to reach out for support from other young people going through similar experiences. Our online community provides that space and allows young people to reach out for support and help each other.

    Situation

    Young people’s mental health and wellbeing has deteriorated at an unprecedented rate over the last decade with little prospect of a sufficient statutory response, with 1 in 5 young people having a probable mental health issue. Today’s young people face an extraordinary range of challenges to their mental wellbeing from social media to family breakdown to pressures in school and the workplace. Charities and voluntary services report being overwhelmed by demand from those with complex needs

    Solution

    Young people want “somewhere to go, something to do and someone to talk to". Our digital community model seeks to reduce the barriers young people face connecting to the right support and engage them - at scale - in proactive peer activities to intervene early and stop everyday challenges becoming crises.
