Working with other organisations

We are proud to work with a range of organisations that share our mission to improve children’s mental health.

Heads Together

Place2Be is one of eight charity partners tackling mental health stigma and developing innovative new mental health services as part of Heads Together. Visit the Heads Together website

Founded in 2016, the campaign is spearheaded by our Royal Patron, Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge, and Their Royal Highnesses The Duke of Cambridge and The Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Read about our Royal Patron.

In 2018, the Heads Together partners Place2Be, the Anna Freud Centre for Children and Families and Young Minds launched Mentally Healthy Schools, a website which provides high-quality mental health resources and advice for schools and colleges. Visit Mentally Healthy Schools.

Place2Be is also one of the partner organisations working with The Anna Freud Centre on the delivery of the Links Programme. Funded by the Department for Education and supported by NHS England, the programme brings together education and mental health services so that children can get help they need, when they need it.

Mental Health Innovations

We work in partnership with Mental Health Innovations on the Shout Crisis Textline. This free, 24/7 text messaging service connects people experiencing mental health crisis to trained volunteers. After an initial pilot in Place2Be partner schools, the service rolled out nationally in 2019.

Black African and Asian Therapists’ Network (BAATN)

Since 2014 Place2Be has hosted regular BAATN Trainer and Therapist Forums for trainers, course leaders and qualified therapists of all heritages and theoretical backgrounds. At these events we explore and reflect on the experiences of BME students, supervisees and clients as well as share good practice in how we facilitate the race conversation on euro-centric courses and in therapy.
