Changing Minds With Pick Up A Penny is a is a none profit making organisation (CIC) dedicated to helping children, young people and adults suffering with mental health issues. They are working towards providing a network of centres, the first of their kind, across the country to provide much needed therapies, CPD, training and events for the wider mental health community. These centres objective will be to provide and expand the range of therapies which are not readily available on the NHS. The centres will also help provide clients with new referral routes so people can access the therapy they need quicker. Waiting times will not be as long which means the pressure on the current mental health system across the region will not be as great.

Help them raise funds for their first ever centre in Newcastle Upon Tyne. Small amounts of money can add up to make a huge difference. While we have support from several North East companies we still have a long way to go to make this project happen.
This campaign is being lead by Sara Young, a UKCP registered Integrative Psychotherapist, EMDR therapist and Neurofeedback therapist.

Changing Minds with Pick Up A Penny is a Community Interest Company (CIC). This is a special form of non-charitable limited company, which exists primarily to benefit a community or with a view to pursuing a social purpose, rather than to make a profit. Changing Minds with Pick up a Penny was set up as a CIC to make sure that it can work the in the best way possible for the whole community.
