LIFEbeat, a long-time London grantee, improves the mental health and wellbeing of teenage youth through creative arts-based activities. The organization brings together a diverse group of 14–18-year olds from disadvantaged backgrounds who often face challenges around racism, inequality, violence, poor mental health, and complex family issues. The youth learn new skills around mental wellbeing. through LIFEbeat’s peer mentor programs, youth leadership programs, summer camps, and residentials. LIFEbeat also trains thousands of teachers and youth workers every year to bring its creative experiential learning to schools and youth work settings.

“At LIFEbeat, you can be part of a community that supports you no matter who you are. It’s such a great place.” Youth participant, age 18
