Crucial mental health services for children The Brabners Foundation Place2 Be

In 2022, The Brabners Foundation provided a £2,500 grant to Place2Be, a children’s charity that provides accessible mental health services in schools. Place2Be helps children to build the coping skills and resilience required to deal with anxiety, sadness and low self-esteem.


Empowering children

An NHS study found that the rates of diagnosable mental health disorders in children increased to one in six in 2021 — a significant increase from one in nine in 2017.

The Covid-19 pandemic has had a long-lasting impact on mental health, increasing feelings of isolation, exacerbating issues of poverty and domestic abuse, and negatively affecting learning.


Place2Be’s impact

Place2Be partners with over 60 schools across Greater Manchester, Merseyside and Lancashire, delivering services to over 28,000 children, parents and teachers.

Overall, it partners with 500 schools across the UK and aims to increase this to 700 by 2025.

Place2Be has found that 66% of children who receive counselling clinically improve their mental health. Teachers also report that 63% of these students’ learning improved in the classroom.
