Young Minds – take action to prevent young people’s mental health needs from escalating.

But for many young people, what happens now will have a lasting impact on their mental health, for years to come – whether that’s because of traumatic experiences at home, the pressures of isolation, or a breakdown in the support that gives them hope. 

That’s why we’re calling on the Government to look #BeyondTomorrow and take action to prevent young people’s mental health needs from escalating.

Sign our petition calling on them to take action


A free, safe and anonymous online counselling and emotional well-being support service for Children and Young People aged 11-18 (25 for care leavers).

It is accessible through mobile, tablet or desktop and is free to use. You can chat to the friendly counsellors, read the online blog written by other young people and keep your own online journal. You can even find short profiles on the staff there so you can find out a bit about the person you’re talking to.

Counsellors are available from:

Weekends 6pm -10pm
