We’re leading the fight for a future where all young minds are supported and empowered, whatever the challenges. We’re here to make sure they get the best possible mental health support and have the resilience to overcome life’s difficulties.

The crisis in children and young people’s mental health is real and it is urgent. More children and young people than ever before are reaching out for help with their mental health. But for those who take that brave step, help is much too hard to find.

Together, we are changing this. We’re fighting for young people’s mental health. Join our fight.


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:

Monday -Friday 12 noon – 10pm

Weekends 6pm -10pm
