Get help if you're a young person

We can help you get the support you need to grow and develop.

We offer practical and emotional support so that you can enter adulthood with the confidence you need to achieve your full potential.

 

Emotional wellbeing

In the same way as your physical body can become unwell, your mind can also become unwell.

If you suffer from an emotional or mental health issue, then you are not alone, but it is something most people find difficult to talk about, but once you do, things can start to get easier for you.

You can find information and advice about common mental health issues including anger and self harm from:

Coping with death

For many people the Covid 19 pandemic shone a light on death and the fragility of life, but how do we cope with it? For many people death is something they have never had to experience. When we lose someone they can leave a gaping hole in your life, even if their death was expected, due to age or illness.

It helps to talk and to remember them, even if it is difficult. If no one talks to you, try talking to them. They may be feeling just as unsure as you. It will help you both to share feelings and memories.

For advice and support please contact these organisations that can help you if someone you care about dies:

  • Hope Again - support for young people after the death of someone close

  • The Samaritans - someone to talk to about anything, anytime

  • Help 2 Make Sense - website and helpline to help you make sense of your loss
