It’s great to see, and really encouraging, that so many campaigns and media coverage surrounding mental health is taking place. Last month I listed numerous mental health awareness days.
I am aware that many young people find it difficult to not only find access and pathways to open up and talk about their difficulties, but also seek support and guidance to coping with a range of issues and difficulties. With this in mind, this month I have listed below a number of services and useful information I feel young people can access to seek help and support.
Find a Therapist- BACP It’s Good to Talk
Find a Therapy
Need some support- Its okay to feel this way- Samaritans
No Panic Anxiety Support
Respect Yourself- Support for young people 13-25
“We were increasingly worried about some aspects of our 11 year old son’s behaviour and his general mental well-being. So we approached Hugh who undertook a course of therapy with him. Over a period of weekly sessions we found our son increasingly happy to visit Hugh and his gentle approach seemed to bring about a noticeable improvement in his apparent wellbeing. All in all we would recommend Hugh very highly, noting of course that it takes a while to get results and, as with children more generally, it is sometimes it is two steps forward and one back. However, we feel like he now is a much happier 11 year old boy.”
I felt my thoughts were taken very seriously and felt my therapist respected me and was caring. This helped me to face and work through the problems that affected me in my life. Thank you so much for being there for me.
