Mental Health Support Services for Children & Young People

How to access support during the Summer break

Over the summer, when school is closed, there continues to be a mental health offer in place for pupils and families.

If you or someone you know is feeling lost, desperate or alone, encourage them to speak to a trusted friend or family member. Sharing how you feel can be a big step in the right direction.

If you are a parent or carer and worried about your child or someone you know:
