1.5 million children and young people in the UK will require mental health support as a direct impact of COVID-19. Please donate to support young people when they need help the most.
The global pandemic has turned the lives of under-25s upside down, leaving them feeling overwhelmed by stress and anxiety. The disruption to young people's education and support networks through months of isolation has led to loneliness and depression, causing long-term damage to their mental health.
The Mix is the UK’s digital lifeline for young people, reaching over 4 million young people each year. Whatever issue a young person is facing, The Mix is always there for them - via our website, over the phone or on social media. We connect young people to experts and their peers to talk about everything from money to mental health, homelessness, jobs, break-ups, drugs and more.
- A £50 donation can fund a counselling session, so a young person can speak to a counsellor about their mental health and wellbeing and find ways to cope in a confidential, safe space.
- A £25 donation can fund a life-saving call on our helpline, so a young person can speak to a trained supporter about any issue from bullying to loneliness and their mental health.
- A £15 donation can provide a week of training for one of our volunteers, to help keep our free and confidential services open for young people.
The Mix contacts emergency services about a young person at active risk of losing their life at least once a day. Please donate to keep our life-saving services open to support young people when they need us most.
