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. It's not always easy to know what to do, 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. 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.
Supporting young people in your community
Being the adult a young person turns to when they open up about their mental health can be a rewarding but challenging responsibility. 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.
