Join young people and celebrities calling for early support hubs

We are in a youth mental health emergency. Record numbers of young people are struggling with their mental health. But all we have seen from the Government is sticking plaster solutions and broken promises.

That's why we’re demanding the Government commits to #FundTheHubs with a national roll out in the Spring Budget.

We empower parents and adults who work with young people, to be the best support they can be to the young people in their lives.

We all have mental health, just like we all have physical health. It’s about how we think, feel and act. Sometimes we feel well, and sometimes we don’t. When our mental health is good, we feel motivated and able to take on challenges and new experiences. But when our mental health is not so good, we can find it much harder to cope.

We all have good days and bad days, but when negative thoughts and feelings start to affect your daily life and stop you doing the things you enjoy, or your ability to feel ok, this means you probably need some support with your mental health. For example, nearly everyone gets anxious before an exam, a job interview or a first date. But if we feel anxious all the time, constantly worrying that the worst could happen, and this stops us sleeping well or meeting up with friends, we might benefit from some help.

No, we are a charity that provides information and advice to young people, and parents and carers. Take a look at our guide to support for information about how Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) work, including information on how you can get help from CAMHS, what happens at an assessment, what your rights are and more. We do not provide one-to-one support with CAMHS assessments, treatments or complaints.

If you're a parent or carer, you can find information about accessing Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) and other services on our getting support from mental health services page. Or you can contact our Parents Helpline for more advice.
