Introducing the Nominet #RESET mental health funding programme
The #RESET Mental Health Programme is a large-scale programme providing grant funding for up to 18-months into two key areas of the system surrounding young people, and forms part of our ambition to improve the lives of 1 million young people a year by 2020.
We believe that young people experiencing mental health challenges could receive better support if we can help to #reset the current system, through directing our funding into two key areas...
1) Digital Services
Grants supporting digital mental health services by increasing the digital capacity of expert mental health charities working nationally in the UK. This will give young people access to better quality support more specific to their personal needs and offer improved integration with offline services.
2) Digital Patterns and Pathways
Grants supporting broader digital initiatives that boost collaboration, pathways and service quality across the mental health sector. By supporting digital collaboration and integration, not only will the quality of digital services improve but young people will be better equipped to find them.
Our #RESET Mental Health Programme Partners - Digital Services
To take their services to the next level, Nightline Association need to go on a journey of digital transformation. Their goal is to invest in building an intelligence dashboard and test new ideas using their growing digital platform. It’s hoped that, through the funding, Nightline Association will be able to support even more students each year collaborate better across their entire network, sharing knowledge and insights with each other and the wider university population.Find out more

The Mix have piloted a Triage Tool which can be embedded on the websites of schools and universities, allowing young people a shortcut to accessing their services. Through broadening the reach of the triage tool, the expert support services from the Mix will be available to far greater numbers of young people on the platforms and on sites they are already accessing, resulting in an improved mental health support journey for young people in a much wider range of settings.Find out more
YoungMinds will improve how you find and navigate their website and improve the content to help young people find what they need, when they need it, allowing them to take practical, actionable steps to help themselves and their peers. Using their content as a service, YoungMinds expect these improvements to their site to support many more young people and benefit from, their expert online resources.Find out more
