Ruby is 2 years old. 

She has a 1-in-10 chance of experience a mental health problem by the time she's 11.

If she does, she faces an average wait of 10 years between first symptoms and getting help.

We found that around one in ten children has a mental health problem, and that on average a child has to wait ten years between experiencing symptoms of mental distress and receiving treatment.

People with mental health problems still don't have a fair chance in life. We need your help to find the solutions. 

With your support, we can discover what works, demonstrate cost-effective solutions and influence policy. As a result, more people can get timely, effective support and have a healthier future.

We can’t do any of this without your support.
