HOPE Guardians is an initiative offering young people one-to-one, online free therapy, once a week with mental health professionals.
WHAT'S MORE, the free therapy sessions will be in their own language, and within their individual cultural context.
DONATE to our initiative: even £5 would help a young person get a free hour of therapy.
HOPE Guardians asks those in need to sign up, where they are matched with a trained professional therapist for free virtual, weekly sessions.
Sign up is anonymous, all that is asked is for a first name, email address, age, country, language and how the person is feeling.
Hope is the essence of HOPE Guardians, because the reason the worst cases with mental issues are in this position is because they have lost all hope.
“Hundreds of millions of young people worldwide suffer from mental health issues, many with little to no way to get help. In South Africa alone, nearly three-quarters of these sufferers are not accessing any form of mental health care at all, while in the UK, one in four 17-year-olds have self-harmed in the past year, with more than 52 247 attempting suicide at some point in their lives,” Tuttle said. “Hope Guardians wants to change this.”
