Mental Health Advice

2 in 3 of the Young Carers registered with us experience some type of mental health difficulty.

Growing up is a time of change and can have many challenges, especially in today’s world. Exams, political unsettlement, climate change, and pressure from friends, family and social media are just some of the factor’s teenagers face alongside their development to adulthood. For our young carers, the responsibility adds an additional level.

Our Support Workers have received Mental Health First Aid for Youth training from Mental Health First Aid England. They are happy to recommend mental health resources to our young carers. Below are outlined several common mental health disorders. We hope you find this useful to further your understanding of mental health.
