Young People’s Mental Health General Information

 

Do you work or volunteer with young people and are looking for information on young people’s mental health?

Sometimes young people feel very confused about their lives and anxious about their future. But by offering support to young people we work/volunteer with who may be experiencing a mental health problem we can make a real difference. Young people often need different levels of support and here we hope to provide you with information which you can use to support young people you work/volunteer with. Whether you’re looking for self-help information to share with young people so that they can look after their own mental health, or for organisations where you can refer young people to for extra support.

Until the early 1990’s Children North East managed a number of children’s homes and provided many country and seaside holidays for children in need of fresh air and convalescence from the unhealthy, crowded urban environment of the region’s cities.
