MedEquip4Kids funds toys, games, art and craft materials and communication aids for Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) across the UK. These are used to support and care for children and young people with a mental health condition.

Arts and crafts can be very calming and therapeutic for children who are struggling with their mental health, as well as giving them a different and creative way to understand their feelings, communicate and express themselves.  Below is some feedback from a service in Edinburgh who recently benefited from our resources.

“The art materials have been much enjoyed. My goodness, the children and young people have loved the added choice. The ink blocks and plaster of Paris have been such fun to try. Thanks so much again. It has made such a difference to know that we had wonderful new art materials to try. Many thanks from us all, Pauline.”

“The materials provided greatly help with the therapeutic process and engaging children, young people and their families in therapeutic work. The young people greatly appreciate having this equipment to use within their sessions. Many of the young people we see have a history of trauma including neglect and being able to access materials that they can use and enjoy is of great benefit and hopefully assists us to reinforce the messages of their worth as their self-concept is often very low.”
