WE ARE

Dundee's Youth Mental Health Charity 💜💪

We exist to make sure that every young person aged 8-26 in Dundee who has experienced a mental health or wellbeing challenge is supported to reach their full potential. We deliver projects, services and campaigns in the community to tackle stigma, build confidence, develop resources, create networks and most importantly support the positive recovery journey of our young people.

As we approach our fifth birthday we’ve asked ourselves who we want to be three, five, and even ten years from now, and what we have to do to make our ambitions a reality. Our vision is to create a Dundee filled with connections and a strong safety net for young people who all too often slip through the cracks. If we work together, we can make the transformational change that our young people so desperately need. We invite you to check out our new strategy here and please share your thoughts with us, we would love to hear them!
