\ufeff\r\n\r\nLast year Place2Be worked with over 900 schools around England, Scotland and Wales, reaching a school population of 142,000 children and young people; providing access to emotional and therapeutic support when it is needed most.\r\n\r\nWe believe early intervention is essential to ensure children\u2019s lives are not defined by mental health issues. We also believe that delivering mental health support in schools is key as it reduces stigma, increases access and ensures we can support teachers, counsellors and parents as well as struggling children and young people.\r\n\r\nLast year we ran almost 85,000 one-to-one counselling sessions, but our vision is to expand tenfold by 2025. To do so we need to train more volunteers so that children have someone to turn to. Help us stop the downward spiral and be there for children like George: \u2018Place2Be is my favourite lesson in school. Happiness, you teach people how to be happy.\u2019\r\n\r\nLegacy giving is the most effective way to make a real difference to children\u2019s mental health.
