The Impact of your Support
Our Island community have always been at the heart of what we do. Every penny we raise stays on the Isle of Man. As we look to the future, the continued involvement and support of this community is vital – supporting our “Stop the stigma” campaign, enabling us to maintain our early intervention offering and building emotional resilience in young people across the Isle of Man.
You help to provide therapeutic aids and materials used in one primary school session by our Art Therapists, to support the delivery of mental health topics and build emotional resilience.
You would enable a young person access to a higher level of therapeutic support around issues such as self-harm, gender issues and mild to moderate anxiety.
You will enable the delivery of our mental health educational programme for one academic year, in one school, covering issues that can effect emotional wellbeing.
