Our Mission

We want to ensure that everyone that needs it has access to mental health support that is right for them. No one should wait for mental health support.


It should be immediate and accessible and also right for you. This might be texting support, a telephone call, face to face meetings, group sessions or just finding peers that know how you feel and can show you there is a way out. 

We want parents to have access to the support they need so that they can spot early signs or open up the right communication with their young people. We want all parents to be able to access training, books and professional help.

Over the following pages we have lots of useful information and support.
