YoungMinds Newsletter – March 2020

We’re going to Parliament – will your MP be there?

We’ve petitioned, we’ve asked MPs to pledge – and now it’s time to go to Parliament. We need the new government to make firm commitments to improve mental health support for children and young people. That’s why on Monday 30 March, our young Activists are hosting an event in Parliament. They’ll be sharing their experiences of what it’s like to access support, so MPs can find out why early intervention is so important. Could you invite your MP to make sure they come?

Send an email to invite your MP today, so they can meet our Activists and hear first-hand about the mental health crisis young people are facing. We’ll be asking MPs to support our call for a cross-government strategy that looks at the factors that make young people’s mental health worse and makes early support a genuine priority. Have you already contacted your MP? Please share the email invite with friends and family, so your MP knows how important this issue is for their constituents.
