The Pan American Highway challenge 2018 is in support of Heads Together. Heads Together is composed of eight charity partners all of which are actively helping individuals and families battle mental health as well as raising awareness. The charity partners are Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families, Best Beginnings, CALM, Contact, Mind, Place2Be, The Mix and Young Minds. Here you can read case studies of those who have sought help from these charities and the effects they've had on their lives.
Place2Be provides in-school support to improve the emotional wellbeing of pupils, families and school staff, and expert training for professionals working with children. The charity helps children cope with emotional challenges so they can have brighter futures.
YoungMinds is the UK's leading charity championing the wellbeing and mental health of children and young people. Driven by their experience, YoungMinds creates change so that children and young people can cope with life's adversities, find help when needed, and succeed in life.
Contact is a collaboration of leading military charities, support organisations, the NHS, the Ministry of Defence, UK Psychological Trauma Society and top academics working together to make the most effective mental health support easily accessible to Service Personnel, Ex-Service Personnel and their families.
The Anna Freud Centre has been developing and delivering pioneering mental health care for over 60 years. They are leading the way by campaigning for and creating mental health services built around the needs and experiences of children, young people and their families, and not around the institutions who deliver them.
No one should have to face a mental health problem alone. Mind supports millions of people every year through our helpline, information services and online communities. Mind also have a network of local Minds providing face-to-face services tailored to communities across England and Wales.
