stem4 is very grateful to the Wimbledon office of Morrisons Solicitors LLP for choosing stem4 as their nominated charity partner for a year. Their first fund raising event for stem4 was a quiz night held at the Antoinette Hotel in Wimbledon in November.
Morrisons Solicitors Wimbledon office is based conveniently in Wimbledon town centre. From there, and across their offices in South West London and Surrey, they advise private clients, families and businesses on the full range of legal services. Morrisons Solicitors pride themselves on being part of the local community and have supported a number of local charities.
Dr Nihara Krause, Founder and CEO of stem4 said “We are delighted that Morrisons Solicitors, Wimbledon office have nominated stem4 as the charity they will support this year and enjoyed joining them at their first fund-raising event. We very much value the support of local corporates who help us deliver our educational services on mental health to children and young people through their fund-raising efforts and by raising our profile in the local community”.
“We are proud to be supporting stem4 this year and are committed to raising much needed funds, helping them to continue the fantastic work they do with teenagers and mental health. We were so pleased that they were able to join us at our fundraising event and are already exploring other ways in which we can support stem4 to achieve their goals” said Paul Harvey, Managing Partner Morrisons Solicitors.
stem4 promotes early identification of teenage mental health problems, in particular eating disorders, addiction, self-harm, anxiety and depression. Information is provided through the stem4 website, stem4 PHSE videos, inter-school conferences to students, as well as parent and teacher conferences and school nurse and GP education. Calm Harm, the stem4 smart phone app to help children and young people manage their urge to self-harm has been downloaded over 65,000 times to date and the charity is currently fund-raising to develop another self-help app.
