Mental health affects so many of us and young people are no different. There is a common stigma attached to mental health and often people find it difficult to discuss, ask for help or seek advice.
Established in 2021, Ellie's Angels work with NHS healthcare, schools and other supportive communities to develop ways that young people can access the help they need in a way that is familiar to them.
We are a registered charity (England & Wales no 1200825), all grants and donations fund our work and activities to support and help others.
Our aim is to introduce mental health awareness and support into day to day life, remove the stigma surrounding the subject and make mental health a 'normal' topic for young people to engage and discuss.
We use Ellie's way to start to help those in need of mental health support by way of journalling, affirmations and other self help tools. In April 2022, working with local healthcare services we launched better u - a brand new App developed by young people, for young people to access help and journal online in a social media style platform that they can associate with.
