The CYP (Children and Young People) part of the Wellbeing Service is delivered by YMCA DownsLink Group.
What is emotional wellbeing support?
Our Emotional Health & Wellbeing workers offer short-term, early intervention work. This work is non-clinical, skills-based and provides a mix of advice, guidance and psychoeducation around mental health needs such as anxiety, stress and low-level self-harm.
Who is it for?
Young people aged 11-25 with mild mental health needs who do not require a full course of counselling/therapy.
They may need some skills-based work or guidance to prevent a further decline in their mental health and it is appropriate for them to engage in a short-term intervention of up to 4 sessions.
If you are aged between 18 and 25 (or older), please complete a referral form for the Adult Wellbeing Service.
