Virtual College is pleased to be able to support YoungMinds, a UK charity committed to improving the emotional wellbeing and mental health of children and young people, with a £2000 donation.

Driven by their experiences, YoungMinds campaign, research and influence policy and practice. They also provide expert knowledge to professionals, parents and young people through its Parents’ Helpline, online resources, training and development, outreach work and publications.

Diane Gault, Director of Fundraising said: “We’re thrilled that Virtual College has decided to support YoungMinds.

“Over 850,000 children – an average of three in every classroom – are suffering from a serious mental illness in the UK today.

“With Virtual College’s generous donation, we will make a real difference to these children and young people who are facing hardship and distress due to mental illness, and to their parents and carers.”
