We're not afraid to ask for help! At a time when public funding for mental health services is falling and the mental health crisis is escalating, stem4 puts evidence-based, psychologically-informed mental health support in the hands of young people across the UK for free.

About us

stem4 is a charity that promotes positive mental health in teenagers and those who support them including their families and carers, education professionals, as well as school nurses and GPs through the provision of mental health education, resilience strategies and early intervention.

This is primarily provided digitally through our innovative education programme, pioneering mental health apps, clinically-informed website and mental health conferences that contribute to helping young people and those around them flourish.

Our mission is to foster the development of good mental health in teenagers through enhancing early understanding and awareness in individuals, their families, schools and the community, promoting shared early detection and signposting towards prompt action and intervention.

To date, we are very proud to have helped support over 5 million young people across the UK and the rest of the world, putting effective, evidence-based mental health support in the palm of their hands 24/7/365.

We are in the midst of a mental health crisis and, with public services increasingly struggling to cope, stem4 provides a lifeline for hundreds of thousands of young people each year. Specifically, we help them through anxiety, self-harm, depression and eating disorders.

We estimate that it costs just £1 to put one of our apps into the hands of a young person. It is increasingly hard to provide funding for our apps and technology, so please help us in any way you can.
