Young people’s mental health prioritised with funding award

A project that aims to support the mental health of young people in South Wales, has been given the green light, thanks to The National Lottery Community Fund.

The ‘Mind our Future’ project, A Mental Health Manifesto; Action for our Future, has been awarded £900,472 from the National Lottery Fund. The funding will enable Cardiff based social enterprise, Single Parents Wellbeing and Heads Above The Waves, to work with young people aged 10-24 years to develop and implement tools to support their mental health and resilience.

The partnership includes the Mental Health Foundation, National Centre for Population Health and Wellbeing Research Swansea University and Public Health Wales’ Research and Evaluation Division, who will be working together to better understand what works to support young peoples’ mental health over the next four years.
