Maudsley launches ‘Project Elf’ Christmas toy appeal for families experiencing mental health difficulties

South London and Maudsley NHS Trust’s parental mental health team is appealing for toy donations for children this Christmas.

The parental mental health team helps parents, who have children under five, who are experiencing mental distress.

The team, which is led by nurses, aims to help minimise the impact parents’ mental health difficulties could have on their kids.

Adult mental health child safeguarding manager for Southwark, Lucy Brazener, said: “Christmas can be a challenging time for families, especially those who might be on a low income.

“We know this toy appeal can make a genuine difference to families who might be struggling this year.

“Toys are not only a way for a child to have fun but they also help them with their development.

“Christmas is a brilliant time to make sure all children have toys and the fun they need.”

The Trust is asking for new toys suitable for children aged up to ten years old.

Please post your gifts by Tuesday, December 18, to Parental Mental Health Team Christmas Appeal, General Office, Maudsley Hospital, Denmark Hill, SE5 8AZ.
