Action for Children believes that the best way to tackle the mental health epidemic is through early intervention and prevention. The cost of treatment – if problems are not tackled at an early stage – has a much higher cost to society and to the economy.

The partnership enabled Action for Children to deliver a nationwide, preventive, mental health programme (The Blues) for young people in schools for the first time. With our funds, the charity employed specialist youth workers to deliver face-to-face support sessions for young people, to help prevent them from developing mental health problems.
