To offer the chance for people who work with children to become educated in the signs and symptoms that could indicate a mental health issue

by Millie's Trust in Cheadle Hulme, England, United Kingdom

We've never done this before, it's quite scary, it's a massive challenge and we need your help!

I'm Joanne and I am Millie's Mummy from Millie's Trust. Just over 7 years ago, we suddenly lost our only child Millie when she choked at nursery and we went on quickly to set up Millie's Trust which originally focused on providing paediatric first aid. We quickly grew and began to offer first aid in workplaces and more recently, we have moved into the mental health sector. 

If you have followed our journey, you may know that both Millie's daddy and myself have suffered through various mental health problems since Millie passed away and this is something we always wanted to help others with once we were in recovery. For various reasons, my own recovery has taken many years and this is a continual journey for both us.

I recently trained as a mental health first aid trainer because I wanted people to benefit from my from my own mental health journey following our traumatic experience and how I have dealt with it. I think speaking to people who have been through these types of illnesses really help others. 

In particular, we want to offer adults who work with children in North West England an opportunity to attend a Youth Mental Health First Aid Course to allow them to gain the knowledge to try and spot the early signs and symptoms of mental health issues - the earlier the intervention, the better the outcome. 


We want to take away the cost element of this course for them so they can concentrate on the children, not trying to raise the funds to gain the knowledge as this could take far too long. 

The funds from this Crowdfunder will be used to set up as many courses as we can in the North West of England to allow people who work. It will fund trainer costs, venue hire, course registrations, course set up packs and office admin time to ensure the courses are set up and run as efficiently as possible. The more donations we receive, the more places we can fund.

We are using this Crowd funder to try and raise at least a quarter of our COMPLETE target for this project. £20,000 would allow us to train 50% of our target of people training target which would be absolutely fantastic! But the more we get over the £20,000 target, the more people we can train and these people could be the people that you children are with in their daily lives. 

Previous Course Feedback 

" I felt the course was very well delivered and I now have a lot more confidence to deal with mental health issues."

" I found the trainer very inspiring, her own personal shared experiences really added to the course, thank you for sharing."

"It was a very well led and organised course which I found very interesting. It will definitely give me more confidence in addressing mental health both personally and professionally."


So what's in it for you?

And then we have a special one ...

A few people have said to me jokingly, why not pledge yourself? Hmm...I wasn't sure what to make of that... so here goes... let's give it a try ...

   And you can buy us! haha ... for breakfast or an evening meal... you can have a private breakfast or evening meal with Millie's Mummy and Daddy and ask us anything you want to ... there's just one of each these available... seriously if anyone pledges for this, I'm going to be stunned...but it's worth a try.
