CHOOSE THE CHARLIE WATKINS FOUNDATION TO BE YOUR CHARITY OF THE YEAR
1 in 4 people will experience a mental health problem in their life time
While there are many people that suffer with mental health problems, it is still a taboo when it comes to talking about it
and seeking help.
The Charlie Watkins Foundation aims to raise funds for services that provide assistance to young people suffering from
mental health problems.
Every year in the workplace, around 70 million days are lost in absence due to mental illnesses
This year, show your support for not only your employees, but to everyone suffering with a mental illness.
Choosing us to be your charity of the year is a great way to show you care and help a worthwhile cause at the same time.
HOW HAVE WE USED DONATIONS SO FAR?
With this money and help, we have been able to set up Chat with Charlie, an online 1:1 chatroom run by trained volunteers.
These volunteers are based at the offices of Mid & North-East Essex Mind and the service is open seven days a week from 6 pm for students at the University of Essex.
It is our hope that we will be able to roll Chat with Charlie out to universities worldwide, so all students can benefit from the service.
