You and your mental health

We are here to help support children, young people and families deal with issues they may be having trouble dealing with.

You may feel like your mental health has been getting worse over time or that something has happened to make you feel this way. You may have a good idea of what's caused you to feel this way, or not at all. It can be overwhelming, and you may feel unable to cope.

Regardless of your situation, it could help to tell someone you trust or ask for support. We are here to help.

Issues that we can help with:
  • Feeling sad, or feeling like you don’t like or value yourself
  • Having trouble at home with family, issues with friends, or problems at school
  • Hearing voices or seeing things
  • Issues with food and eating
  • Feeling anxious or scared
  • Having problems concentrating or finishing tasks
  • Finding it difficult to relate to others, and socialise
  • Difficulty controlling your anger and emotions
  • Having to check or repeat things, and difficulty breaking out of routines
  • Dealing with a traumatic experience

These are only a few examples, and you may be dealing with other complicated issues that are not mentioned above.
