Information for young people aged 11-18

Watching your child go through a difficult time can be very upsetting. We can be unsure how to go about helping them and making sure they get the support that they need.

We’re here for you if you’re finding things hard. We help everyone understand mental health problems, so no one has to feel alone.

Ways how your child can seek support and help from us:

  • Understanding mental health, wellbeing and types of mental health problems.
  • Learn about feelings and experiences they might be having, and how to cope with them.
  • Finding support, talking to their doctor, and understanding CAMHS.
  • Learn about what legal rights they have for their mental health.

You can also visit our Information page for parents, carers, family members and guardians who are supporting a young person with their mental health and wellbeing. Visit our Information hub for young people today

Make space in your day for a conversation about mental health this 

Time to Talk Day – 2 February 2023

Time to Talk Day is the nation’s biggest mental health conversation. Happening every year, it’s a day for friends, families, communities, and workplaces to come together to talk, listen and change lives.

We are pleased to announce Time to Talk Day 2023 will take place on 2 February 2023, run by Mind and Rethink Mental Illness, in partnership with the Co-op and with support from Time To Change Wales, SAMH in Scotland and Inspire in Northern Ireland.

We know the more conversations we have, the better life is for everyone. Talking about mental health isn’t always easy, but a conversation has the power to change lives. Visit TimeToTalkDay.co.uk to find out more on how to take part in Time to Talk Day, from organising an event in your local library or hosting a lunch and learn session to simply sharing information on social media or texting a friend. And you can sign up to our newsletter to learn more in the run-up to the next Time to Talk Day.
