In partnership with Maudsley Charity, Dove will fund Mental Health Facilities at the Pears Maudsley Centre for Children and Young People - a new facility that will protect the mental health of some of the UK’s most vulnerable young people experiencing anxiety, depression, self-harm, and eating disorders. The Maudsley Charity’s Change the Story campaign is supporting the work of the new Centre.
In partnership with Parenting Mental Health, Dove will make access to support services and advocates more accessible for parents whose kids are navigating mental health challenges. Together with Global Action Plan, 5Rights and Girlguiding, Dove will raise awareness of harmful features on social media to encourage new design standards that will make social media safer for kids.
If you are worried about your own or someone else’s mental health, text SHOUT to 85258 for free, confidential 24/7 support.
For eating disorder support or help finding treatment, contact Beat on 0808 801 0677 or beateatingdisorders.org.uk
