Support for younger people

mental health support for young people

Are you a young person. or concerned about a young person, and looking for support with mental health?

Support for you if you are aged 16-25

Are you:

  • worried about your mental health
  • feeling anxious or depressed
  • self-harming or having thoughts about it
  • having family problems or are struggling with friendships at college or at work because of your mental health
  • diagnosed with a mental health problem and are looking for support
  • getting help from services but this is coming to an end as you are reaching 18

If you are facing any of these things we have dedicated youth workers who can help.

Our youth workers offer one-to-one support at our offices and in other places including local colleges. We have a flexible approach to introductions so we can arrange where best to meet you and if it would be helpful for someone to support you with your first meeting. We will work with you to help you understand what you need and support you to try and achieve goals that you have set for yourself.

Group activities

We also run regular social activities. These are small groups which are relaxed and informal. The young people who come are involved in deciding what activities would suit them best and some previous examples are outdoor activities at Lodge Hill, music workshops and drop-in sessions for a chat at friendly venues.

The aim is always to keep it light-hearted and fun. There is no pressure to join in or to stay for the whole session. 

We also have groups for dog walking and volunteering at animal hospitals. This is an opportunity for people to get together in a relaxed way, to get outside and try something new within their community. 

Parents and carers

If you are a parent and worried about your child you can ring us and we will offer advice, information and support to you even if your child does not wish to talk to us themselves. 

I'd like some help. What do I do next?

Getting in touch is easy. You, or someone supporting you (a friend, family member or professional) can call or email us for information. If you're a carer for a young person and are looking for support and advice, you can give us a call too. Please ring the location closest to you to find out what we offer in your area.

Mental health support

Mind youth services,  both individual sessions and now a new weekly youth group,  has allowed me to feel less isolated with feelings such as anxiety and depression. Mind has given me greater motivation to try new things to improve my mindset, and has improved my self esteem.
