The Eikon Charity: a vital lifeline for children in crisis
Registered Charity No. 1109190
Help ensure that every child in Surrey who is depressed, anxious, self-harming or suicidal has access to specialist help without delay, free of charge.
Prevention and early intervention saves lives. Less than 1 in 3 children with a diagnosable mental health disorder gets access to NHS care. Those that do can wait weeks just to be assessed. In that time their condition can get worse. Tragically, sometimes the help they need comes too late. Together we can change that.
Eikon is a leading charity working with children in schools and communities across Surrey and beyond – one-to-one, in groups and in clubs, to improve their emotional wellbeing and mental health. Our regular contact with them – and the trust that young people have in our staff and volunteers, means that we can identify those at risk and take action before a concern can become a crisis or tragedy.
We work closely with NHS children’s mental health services, with schools, communities and local authorities, because working together creates the best outcomes for young people.
Will you help us to help children at risk of self-harm and suicide?
Please support us today so that we can be there for more children. Thank you.

The counsellor from The Eikon Charity was a lifeline for me. I was self-harming and thinking seriously about suicide.”
