For many of us, Christmas is a time of coming together, of reconnection – and of huge anticipation. But while many children are writing Christmas wish lists, looking forward to seeing Father Christmas, and counting down the days until they celebrate with friends and family, far too many are struggling. Isolated and alone. Scared and unhappy. They’re waiting for vital mental health support – a lifeline. Waiting simply to be heard.
As a society, we’re ‘missing’ too many children and young people. Children cannot afford to wait for professional support are being left to struggle alone. In pain, isolated. Desperate to be heard, to be supported, to be helped. This Christmas, children can’t wait any longer.
Christmas can be stressful for many of us, and especially for young people who are struggling with their mental health. The social pressure to have a ‘perfect’ Christmas, full of peace, joy, and presents, can feel overwhelming – especially when a young person’s reality looks very different from this idealised picture. Christmas puts real pressure on children and families, creating additional challenges – professional support can make all the difference.
Christmas should be a time of connectedness and joy. We have the power to take immediate action for children today, so that every young person can receive vital mental health support when they need it. Will you join us?
Your gift could help a child be heard this Christmas – giving them the support they need, before they reach breaking point.
