Supporting you to work better with young people
Working with children and young people can be rewarding and fulfilling, but it can be difficult sometimes too. Whether you want to support a young person when they open up about their mental health or want to better involve them in your work, it's not always easy to know what to do. We're here to offer you the resources, training and consultancy you need so you can be there for the young people in your life, and help to amplify their voices in the services and decisions that affect them. Together, we can make a difference.
How we help you work with young people
We train and educate your team
At YoungMinds, the real experiences of young people and professionals are at the heart of our training programme. Each year, we deliver training to over 10,000 professionals.
Our expert trainers will give you the practical skills you need to support the young people you work with. We value discussion and run courses in a relaxed and supportive way so you can build confidence in your new skills and reflect on your development.
We design and improve mental health support across a range of sectors
At the heart of our service design consultancy is our experience and insights driven by young people. That's why we can help you commission, design and deliver mental health interventions that truly meet the needs of the young people you are trying to help.We have a wealth of experience supporting services for the NHS, schools, and community and voluntary services.
We help you support young people in your community
Whether you work at a youth club, coach a sports team, or run extra-curricular activities outside of school, we know the positive and crucial role you play in the lives of young people.
At YoungMinds, we want to make sure young people have adults in their lives who can help. We understand you may often feel under-equipped to support them. So, when a young person in your community turns to you for support, we have practical information, tips and resources so you can feel confident when responding to their wellbeing needs.
Learning from Black young people about their experiences with mental health
We need to be better at supporting Black and minoritised young people with their mental health, and understanding the factors unique to their experience.
That's why we collaborated with Poetic Unity to facilitate a workshop with Black young people that explored how adults can respond well to them talking about their mental health.
