How we help

Young People’s Service 

If you are a young person aged 8 to 25 experiencing struggles with your emotions or mental health, such as often feeling low, stressed or worried, accessing support can help in a number of ways.  It can offer space for you to explore things to work towards better understanding what you are experiencing, help you learn ways of supporting and improving your mental wellbeing, and learn that you do not have to struggle alone.

We offer a range of different support.  Currently this includes:

1 to 1 Mentoring for people aged 8 to 18

1 to 1 Counselling for people aged 16 to 25

A Creative Lives peers support group for people aged 8 to 21

Please click on the link (either above or on the left) to find out more about each and how to self refer.  If you are thinking about accessing support for yourself but feel anxious or unsure, a member of the young people's team can talk this through with you to help you with your decision.
