TRANSFORMING YOUNG PEOPLE'S MENTAL HEALTH

 

JULIE'S LEGACY

Julie believed passionately that the provision of high quality mental health support within a school environment was a key factor in enabling children, particularly those from deprived backgrounds, to achieve their true potential.

 

This is why we are setting up the Juliet Garmoyle Fund, partnering Place2Be, as an important part of Julie's legacy. Place2Be is the UKs leading children's mental health charity working in schools, and one she really championed. The Juliet Garmoyle Fund will enable Place2Be to roll out its pioneering, and much needed, service to schools in the South West of England for the first time.

WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT?

Societal Impact

A 2018 study demonstrated that each £1 spent on counselling delivers in excess of £6 in societal returns (in the form of higher earnings and lower cost to the taxpayer)

The Need in the South West

In Devon, children's self harm admissions to hospitals is over 50% above the national average, and there is an estimated 37% annual reduction in NHS clinical commisioning group spend per child.

Sustainable Approach

We share the cost of the mental health support we provide with the school, increasingly over a 4 year period, so that the school eventually pays for 100% of the support.

WHY PLACE2BE?

Place2Be is the leading children’s mental health charity, working in schools. With over 25 years’ experience.

“Place2Be’s support for children, parents and teachers results in fewer young people needing referrals to people like me. Inspirational is a much over-used word, but Place2Be’s work is just that”
