Essex-based research society donates £50,000 to three charities

"We felt it was important to donate money to support these three deserving charities to help them tackle the mental health avalanche that is coming our way."

The donation was made available following the closure of the BBRS which has been brought into the jurisdiction of the BWRT Institute.

The money has been split equally between YoungMinds, SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity and Parenting Mental Health.

The BWRT Institute was founded in Essex in 2014 and provides training in brain working recursive therapy (BWRT) which is based in neuroscience and is designed to get a fast and permanent fix from issues such as anxiety, phobias, fears, anxiety, depression, addiction, trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Julie Watts, Vice-CEO of The Terence Watts BWRT Institute says: "The UK is facing a second pandemic of mental ill health as a result of what's happened with Covid-19. Everyone from frontline medics to young children are experiencing mental health issues.

“Our BWRT practitioners have seen a huge surge in the number of people seeking help. We will continue to help treat people with our pioneering therapy, but we also felt it was important to donate money to support these three deserving charities to help them tackle the mental health avalanche that is coming our way."

About the charities who are receiving the donation:

  • YoungMinds is the UK’s leading charity fighting for children and young people's mental health.
  • SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity that provides lifelong support to the serving, reservists, veterans and their families from the British Armed Forces.
  • Suzanne Alderson founded the charity group Parenting Mental Health following the attempted suicide of her daughter Issy. Parenting Mental Health is an online community for parents of children and teenagers suffering from acute mental illness.

Tom Madders, director of campaigns at YoungMinds said: “We are extremely grateful for this generous donation, especially during this difficult time where so many young people have struggled with their mental health. These vital funds will support us to continue our work fighting for the mental health of children and young people across the UK as we emerge from the pandemic and help to ensure that no young person feels alone with their mental health.”

Rebecca Keaveney, head of commercial and corporate fundraising at SSAFA said: “We are so grateful for Terence and Julie’s incredibly generous donation which will make a huge difference to the lives our beneficiaries, helping SSAFA continue to provide vital support, to restore dignity and independence to those serving, reservists, veterans and their families.”

Suzanne Alderson, founder of Parenting Mental Health says: “This generous donation has allowed us to accelerate our Listening Circle project, where parents are offered 6 free group sessions of emotional support, as well as supporting our in-person parent meet ups that start in 30 locations around the UK in June. I am so grateful to Julie and Terence. Not only have they made an impact on the world with BWRT but they are also supporting other organisations too.”
