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
You gave me the space to get a lot of my shoulders and didn’t judge me. I was depressed and feeling low for a long time. I had suicidal thoughts which stopped me from going to college and living my life. You helped me so much to understand and work through my anxieties. Thank you Hugh.
All my gratitude
I came to Hugh having low expectations of what counselling do for me, but Hugh was welcoming and understanding from the first session. The sessions became the highlight of my week and I would emerge feeling like a huge weight had been lifted and feel positivity and hope. Hugh gave me the power to view things from a different perspective and has helped me enjoy the good things in life again. Even though this chapter has been resolved, I would not hesitate to reach out to Hugh again should anything change in the future. Thank you for all your help!
