Based in Sussex, our aim is to help every young person access the support they need HoldOnPainEnds
With the public health system in crisis, we have taken action to fill the gap in services by providing early intervention.
3 in 4 children with a diagnosable mental health condition do not get access to the support they need.
1 in 4 children show some evidence of mental ill health.
18 months is the average waiting time for a first appointment with Children and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS).
50% of mental health problems appear before the age of 14, with one in four enduring mental health conditions to the age of 24.
We provide a reassuring environment for a young person emotionally struggling, or close to crisis.
All the people working at HOPE have been touched by this (sometimes terrifying) emotionally charged issue.
We HOPE all young people can see a future full of potential and possibilities.
We are a small organisation doing a mammoth task, seeking to help the many young people & their families struggling to deal with their day-to-day life.
We know that EARLY INTERVENTION is absolutely KEY to prevent a young person developing serious additional symptoms.
However, the problem is escalating. The NHS (CAMHS) system is hugely OVERSTRETCHED with average 18 MONTHS waiting times for a first appointment. They simply are not able to give the help & support that's needed for so many, at the time they need it.
You can help us to make a difference & prevent these young people getting to such desperate states due to not being acknowledged and heard . Help us to help our next generation & their families now.
Please spare a small to make a big difference today.
