Deutsche Bank and The Mix choose mental health

The Mix are one the top three charities in the running to be Deutsche Bank’s charity partner for 2022-2023, with the final vote made by Deutsche Bank staff members. This game-changing opportunity will enable us to double our helpline reach, to offer more life-saving 121 mental health support and counselling to young people in a post-pandemic world.

The pandemic and lockdown has had a catastrophic effect on the mental health of young people driving loneliness, anxiety and a shocking rise in self-harm and eating disorders. As young people deal with bereavement, disruption to their education and increasing bleak employment prospects, the next 18 months are crucial if we are to help the most vulnerable to recover.

As NHS and statutory services struggle, the pandemic has shown the need for more digitally accessible support for young people that can operate at scale. With a focus on driving positive mental health, The Mix is unique in helping young people with every challenge they face from depression to money, homelessness to jobs, break-ups to drugs and more.

Together, Deutsche Bank and The Mix will:

  • Double our helpline response rate from 13,000 to 26,000 lifesaving calls plus increase the number of young people accessing free counselling spaces at The Mix.
  • Build our digital volunteering programme to recruit more trained volunteers to support young people’s mental health.
  • Provide expert advice and content led by young ambassadors on issues such as self-harm and anxiety.
  • Develop bold integrated campaigns to amplify awareness of youth mental health issues.
  • Leverage the power of our data, including assessing the causes of poor mental health in young people, and identifying the best interventions to combat it.
