Why

Today, the pressure on our young people to do well at school has never been higher. Many are experiencing anxiety about their exams. However, this anxiety is not just solely because of their exams. Other factors will contribute such as:

  • Divorce & the breakdown of the family
  • Poor parenting and lack of great role models
  • Academic pressures to exec
  • Social Media: unable to switch off from what friends are doing
  • Feeling under pressure to conform to society‚Äôs standards of stereotypes
  • Fear of Missing Out (FOMO).
  • Skewed views of women due to the availability of porn.
  • The availability of drugs and other addictive substances.
  • The statistics are frightening: 20% of teenagers aged 13-18 live with depression;
  • 1: 10 teenagers have a diagnosable mental health problem
  • and 50% of all life time mental health problems begin before the age of 14.
  • 20% of all teenagers who are cyber bullied consider suicide.
  • Every 100 seconds a teenager takes their own life.

We are currently applying for a feasibility grant in order to run a pilot scheme
