BoysBottleUp Young Enterprise at Chesterfield Trade Fair
BoysBottleUp [Erase the Stigma] is a Young Enterprise venture set up by 13 of our Sixth Form students in September 2022 with the aim of raising awareness of teenage boys' mental health and helping to eradicate the stigma surrounding men's mental health.
5219 suicides were registered in England during 2021 with 75% of them being men. This shocking statistic is made even more frightening by the fact that only 14.7% of men report having problems with their mental health compared to 24.6% of women.
Everyone deserves a chance to talk but not everyone feels like they can or knows where to turn. By donating or purchasing a key chain or a t-shirt from BoysBottleUp which they have designed and manufactured themselves, you will be supporting their vision to erase the stigma surrounding young men reaching out for support , as well as signposting those in need of help to specialist organisations.
BoysBottleUp have chosen 3 charities to support with donations from their events:
1. Derbyshire Mind - a local independent mental health charity
2. P3 Charity - specialise in homelessness prevention, mental health and wellbeing services for young people
3. Derbyshire Federation for Mental Health - specialise in promoting positive mental health, reducing stigma and promoting independence
