Lino Carbosiero MBE
Lino is one of the UK’s top hairstylists and we are delighted to welcome him as an Ambassador for Young Minds Matter.
Lino has been in the industry since the 1980’s and has built up a hugely respected client base, with many famous celebrities from the world of music, sport, TV, media, politics and Royalty. One of the pinnacles of his career was to receive an MBE in 2014 for both his outstanding contribution to the hairdressing industry and his charity work.
“I have been a passionate supporter of Young Minds Matter since its first fundraising event in 2017, having personally experienced the devastating effect of having a young daughter suffer with her mental health. As a result, I’ve now made it my mission to help raise awareness and vital funds for the delivery of support that so many young people need, through the Young Minds Matter mentoring and social and emotional learning arm, YM3. Through my own experiences, I’ve come to realise that it is not only the sufferer who lives with the torment, despair and anxiety of their declining mental health, but also their family and friends. I have witnessed that the road to recovery is often a very long one, fraught with lengthy waiting lists for professional help, seemingly endless setbacks and with little accessible support available when it’s really needed. We need to do more.
By pledging to raise much needed funds, as well as raising awareness at the same time, I hope that less young people will slip through the net and, importantly, they will be able to receive the early intervention help and support they need to be happy and healthy and safe. All our young people deserve that opportunity.”
