#DontDoItAlone campaign for children and young people’s mental health

As a part of Children’s Mental Health Week 2021, Kooth launched their #DontDoItAlone campaign, designed to encourage open conversations around mental health so children and young people know they are not alone with their struggles. The campaign is specifically aimed at young people, with some of the biggest stars on social media in their new video.

Visit explore.kooth.com/dontdoitalone to watch the video, and for an overview of the campaign. You can also download bespoke materials for schools and practices in your area.

If you’re under 19, you can also call 0800 1111 to talk to Childline. The number will not appear on your phone bill.

 

Call 999 or go to A&E now if:

  • someone’s life is at risk – for example, they have seriously injured themselves or taken an overdose
