Minds Ahead, a social enterprise organisation which works with schools, colleges and other organisations to provide practical solutions to support the mental health needs of pupils, staff and parents, has teamed up with Sheffield Children’s Hospital to help renovate the mental health crisis room at the hospital.
"We change pupils’ mental health for the better and support young people's mental health"
The fundraising will help transform the STAR Team Room in the Emergency Department at Sheffield Children’s. The designated space is used to complete assessments for young people who attend Sheffield Children’s experiencing mental health challenges. The room is safe and quiet, helping to support patients and their families to feel they can talk openly during difficult times.
Working with Artfelt, the proposed redecoration involves a mural designed to make a more welcoming space, which can be flexible to adapt to both the nature of the assessment and the patient involved. The new design has been carefully considered with both the staff and young patients to ensure the new environment will be tailored to their needs.
The Minds Ahead team are going to run, swim, walk, bake and anything else in-between to raise money over the next year.
