Imagine a world where everyone has the skills they need to thrive. Skills like empathy, resilience and compassion. But without these skills, too many of our children and young people are suffering.
Today, 1 in 4 of our teenagers are suffering a mental illness, and 1 in 7 of our children between the ages of 6 and 12 are experiencing the same problems. Youth psychological distress has tripled in numbers over the past decade, and youth suicide rates are at a ten year high.
Together, we can change this future for our children and young people.
At Smiling Mind, we believe that every child has the right to thrive in life, and your support makes that possible.
Smiling Mind is helping make our children and future generations happier and healthier through the regular practice of mindfulness. By embedding mindfulness into schools, we can help educators, parents and communities teach our children these critical skills to empower good mental health, and prevent mental illness.
Our goal is to reach 5 million children and young people by 2021 – and you can help us achieve it! Donate today to help us reach more children, teachers, parents and schools with our mindfulness program.
Together, we can create a world where every mind can thrive.
