Centre announces new corporate supporter Jo Malone London
The Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families is proud to announce their new corporate supporter Jo Malone London.
Jo Malone London has a history of supporting mental wellbeing and their latest initiative will be supporting our Schools in Mind work to raise awareness of mental ill-health, emotional wellbeing and prevention through early intervention in schools.
Jo Malone London's support will help us reach thousands of school children by engaging over 2,500 schools to help promote mental health through our Schools in Mind network.
Peter Fonagy, Chief Executive of the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families said: “We are delighted to announce the support of Jo Malone London. This is an important relationship and we are very pleased that it is with an organisation that has demonstrated its commitment to promoting mental health. By supporting our work with schools Jo Malone London will help us to engage schools so that they can identify children’s needs at an earlier stage so that their problems can be prevented or contained.”
One in ten children and young people (aged 5-16 years) have a clinically diagnosable mental health problem. Schools are increasingly having to play a role in supporting children’s wellbeing and mental health, but many do not have the expertise or confidence to deal with the range of issues they often have to face. Seven in ten children and adolescents who experience mental health problems have not had appropriate interventions at a sufficiently early age.
The Schools in Mind network will be supported through the sales of their new Iris & Lady Moore Charity Home Candle and much-loved Peony & Moss Charity Home Candle.
