The mental health of children and young people has taken a hit this year. On top of all the turmoil and challenges of growing up, they have faced wave after wave of uncertainty.
Together we can support children and young people to cope with everything they’re experiencing now and in the future, so they can achieve their dreams.
Experiencing different feelings is completely normal
Sometimes our feelings can help, but sometimes they hinder and prevent us all from achieving all that we are capable of.
As many as one in six young people between the ages of 16 and 24 have experienced a mental health issue. And the anxieties of a global pandemic mean that it’s even tougher to deal with an uncertain and changing world.
Fight For All The Feels is about helping young people to feel confident in speaking up safely about how they’re feeling and raising vital funds for those who need support. No child or young person should feel like they are isolated and alone and no one should be afraid or shamed to speak out.
Fight for All the Feels is addressing the issue of youth mental health head-on. Through our innovative Forward Thinking Birmingham (FTB) service at Birmingham Women’s and Children’s NHS Foundation Trust, we’re providing a range of mental health services to the 0-25 year olds across the city who need them most.
But we need you to help us. Join the fight – because we believe the good mental health of children and young people is worth fighting for.

Forward Thinking Birmingham
Forward Thinking Birmingham is the city’s mental health partnership for 0-25 year olds, a proud part of the Birmingham Women’s and Children’s NHS Foundation Trust family.
Their mission is simple – to make ours the first city where mental health problems are not a barrier to children, young people or young adults achieving their dreams.
They offer a wide range of talking and therapeutic support to young people and work with a number of organisations in the voluntary and community sector to deliver services to young people across the city.
