Triangulate, the Romsey-based charity which raises awareness of positive mental wellbeing in the workplace, has recently made donations totalling £900 in support of young people in the town. Cheques have been presented to The Romsey School, The Mountbatten School, Youth in Romsey and Solent Mind’s Heads Up project (which is delivered in local schools.)  Bridget Brook, Trustee, says ‘whilst Triangulate primarily supports people in the workplace, we know that studies suggest about 1 in 10 of all young people may experience a mental health problem or disorder. It’s also proven that getting help early can prevent difficulties becoming more serious and as with all mental health issues it’s really important that young people feel they can have these conversations without fear of stigma and discrimination. Time to Change, the national campaign to challenge mental health stigma and discrimination, has produced many resources to support young people, including information for parents and these are very informative. We hope these donations will enable the schools and support agencies to continue the positive work already taking place.’

Ian Richards, Vice Chair of Youth in Romsey, on receiving the cheque, says ‘this donation is much appreciated and will support our work with young people, especially those without life skills or with learning difficulties, in achieving work placements. Our work is sympathetic to Triangulate with young people of the Romsey area.’
