“We are excited to launch our new Young Peoples Listening Service for young people aged 12 to 18, which is now taking referrals, offering one to one support for young people aged 12-18 who would benefit from mental health focussed support and/or someone to talk to.

Our aim is to listen and to empower young people to know how to improve their mental health, including supporting them to reflect upon and become more aware of their thoughts, emotions, and behaviours, promoting wellbeing techniques whilst supporting the young people to gain a more positive mental wellbeing and emotional resilience.

These one to ones are then complimented by a weekly “peer support group” offering a chance to come together with their peers, to support each other and further explore mental health issues and ways to develop support networks and self-care skills.
