The Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families has been developing and delivering pioneering mental health care for more than 65 years.
The Centre's aim is to build resilience and to help children, young people and families with their mental wellbeing. They pilot new interventions which address mental health and wellbeing while also providing training and resources to other professionals to be more effective in their work.
We are pleased to support States of Mind, a collaborative pilot project aiming to help Hackney's vulnerable young people identify the key mental health issues that concern them and how best to respond to these issues. The project will use a peer mentoring model, allowing young people to shape and design the programme through a series of workshops and engagement activities, and develop a replicate model which can be rolled out in other Peabody estates. It is hoped that this project will positively change the way young people view existing mental health services.
