get involved! together, let’s impact one million lives -->
1 in 6 children aged between 5-16 years has a probable diagnosable mental health issue. This is equivalent to 5 children in each and every class of 30, in each and every school. Mental health support services cannot keep up with the increased demand, leaving many families in crisis.
We have to act now!
Ambitious? You bet!!
Yet, great things come from small beginnings.
We know prevention is better than cure. Children who feel connected, heard, and understood are less likely to struggle with their mental health.
One Million Moments is all about seizing opportunities to connect with children, moment by moment, day by day.
One Million Moments will tackle the mental health crisis using a three pronged approach – prevention, through moments, crisis support, through donations, and paying it forward, through nominations.
Focuses on prevention
Helps support families already in crisis through our charity partners
Paying it forward and building up momentum
A moment is a spontaneous portion of device-free time when we are fully present for our child or teen. A moment is not a defined time period – it can be fleeting when we take a moment to appreciate our child’s smile as they greet us, or longer lasting as we listen to their fears about an upcoming test, or a 5-minute game of hide and seek.
What’s key is we seize opportunities when they arise.
These moments build connection, and connection protects against mental health issues arising.
Lean-in when moments arise and connect
Listen to truly understand your child’s experience
Learn about your child’s inner world and what they need from you
I am delighted you want to help. I truly believe if we all work together one moment at a time those million moments will make miracles happen.
