Supporting Beautiful Minds
MYM is all about you and your beautiful mindset. It drove us to start on this journey and it will continue to drive us to create and offer unique and innovative products to ensure your mental well-being is tiptop.
However, at times, we can all struggle. In fact every year one in four of us will experience some sort of mental health challenge and despite this being on the agenda more than before there are still thousands of us that still struggle to get diagnosed and access to treatment.
At MYM we are passionate that everyone with a mental health problem should be able to access appropriate and effective care and services to help them manage.
Our national health and social service agencies are still grossly underfunded in this rising area of public need and, tragically, many people are left on ever increasing wait lists at their most vulnerable time. This is why we have teamed up with MIND, the mental health charity, who are working hard to ensure that no-one has to struggle with mental health issues on their own.
We have made a contractual agreement to donate 15% of our proceeds directly to MIND to help combat the financial challenges and, importantly, ensure greater awareness and a deeper understanding of the personal challenges people face.
The Bigger Plan
But it doesn’t end here. With our long-term success comes a very real and long-term ambition to address a gap in mental health care for young adults. It is commonly accepted that the highest percentage of any mental illness occurs between the ages of 18-25.
This is the key time when adolescents are moved from child-focussed care services to adults services. This is also the key time when they can get lost in the crowd.
We want to harness the success of our products to continue to donate to well-needed charities whilst creating and supporting a Young Adult Mental Wellbeing Service.
YA Mental Wellbeing Service
This service will be run and operated by the most experienced and dedicated individuals from a variety of clinical backgrounds who are passionate about what they do.
No-one at MYM will ever be just a number and our clinical service will fly this flag high and proud. Over time we hope we can realise a similar service for the young and older.
So, every time you purchase a MYM product, you are stepping with us to help those who are struggling both now and in the future.
Thank you – we simply cannot do it without you.
