This is one of the most important ones. We’ve been through a pandemic and young people have been hit particularly hard – facing disruption to their education and employment and missing some major milestones. A good first port of a call could be your GP, or if you are at school or college, it may be worth speaking to the Pastoral team.
There are too many great resources and charities to list here but the NHS Every Mind Matters
is a great resource, and Young Minds
specialise in support for young people. The Mix
also specialise in support for under 25’s and can offer online and telephone counselling and support.
If you, or a loved one need urgent mental health support, please call 111 and select the mental health option.
