SUPPORTING YOUNG PEOPLE IN YOUR COMMUNITY
Do you work in a youth club, coach a sports team or help with extra-curricular activities outside of school? If so, we know you play a crucial role in the lives of young people. You might be the person they choose to turn to to talk about their mental health, or someone they reach out to for help. This can be a rewarding but challenging responsibility.
We’ve created new tips and resources that can really help if you feel under-equipped. From advice on how to talk to young people about their mental health, to resources that can help young people express how they’re feeling, we’ve developed lots of new content so that you can feel confident responding to their mental health questions and concerns.
