2023 Shortlisted Nominee
Community Organisation Award: Gender

Boys in Mind are a small but passionate team of educators, PSHE and mental health experts, film makers and other professionals, based in the Bath area. They work in partnership with children, young people and professionals in a range of settings to promote good mental health and prevent suicide, particularly among boys and young men. Their work is guided by promoting positive mental health and positive images of boys and men and encouraging active partnerships with young people, schools, universities and other organisations to reach thousands of young people. Boys in Mind are working tirelessly to address the barriers boys and young men face and challenge unhelpful and inaccurate stereotypes around what it means to be a man. By doing so, they are helping to improve male mental health and, ultimately, reduce suicide rates.
