Mental health problems may be unseen but can be devastating for individuals and their loved ones. Demand for our services has significantly increased since the pandemic began, with requests for help more than doubling in key areas. We need to ensure support is available to everyone who needs it.
36 hours to raise £1m
Launching at 10am on Sunday 23rd January, Jami has 36 hours to raise £1m. We need to raise £1m through this campaign to:
- maintain support for the 1400+ existing users of Jami’s services;
- grow services to meet the one third increase in people being supported since the start of the pandemic;
- launch a pilot programme delivering early intervention services for young people of secondary school age;
- expand Head Room Café – Jami’s community café that provides mental health support on the high street; and
- expand suicide prevention, education and campaigning.
Every donation by the community is being matched by key donors, allowing all donations on the day to be doubled.
Receiving no statutory or government funding, Jami is almost entirely funded by the generosity of the community. The ‘See Me’ campaign this weekend is to ensure that Jami can see, hear and help everyone needing support with their mental health.
