Our charity provides a range of support for helping young people get the support they need if they are suffering with their mental health and wellbeing. We run some of these services in schools like a drop-in session to talk to one of our staff or volunteers, access to counselling services and training up mental health champions to offer peer support. Have a chat with your school to see what is on offer there if you feel like any of these things could help.
Sometimes, all we need is to be able to talk over how we’re feeling to help us make sense of it and find out what other help might be out there. We have a team of volunteer mentors who can offer one-to-one support if you feel like talking to someone could help you. You can talk to our mentors in complete confidence and they can help with offering a listening ear and support you into other services if necessary. Our fully trained volunteers have a range of life experience and skills that can help you. Many of our volunteers have actually gone through issues similar to those being faced by our young people. Homelessness, substance misuse, bullying and domestic abuse may have been a part of their lives once, but our volunteers are shining examples of how you can come out the other end.
We can offer this support face-to-face, over the phone or via Zoom/Whatsapp, whatever works best for you.
