1 in 8 children have a diagnosable mental health disorder.*

Imagine how many children are suffering whilst waiting for help.
We are asking for your help for some precious young people who are especially at risk at the present time.
Right now, more than ever, we can all understand the challenge of facing stress and anxiety. We are receiving more referrals from parents desperate for their children to be able to access counselling.
We have moved swiftly to step up our special digital channels, which means that we can stay in touch, even when we cannot be face to face. This will bring great comfort to many young people.

It only took one night and careless friends who got her drunk to leave Tammy crying for help.
You may find it difficult to imagine just what it feels like to be in her young shoes. But, at Fegans it is a great privilege to be able to be there for her and, there is no better feeling than the delight when we see young lives like hers being turned around. All because you provide the kind support we need to help when they need it most.
Before the present crisis we were already working hard to reduce delays to getting help to our children. As you can imagine, the current situation makes that an even greater challenge.
We will not give up on them, not now, not ever!
