Who We Are

We are first and foremost parents. We have all witnessed first hand the struggles with our own children and their friends. Due to some tragic experiences in our local area we came together to try and help.


We could see that the schools were as overwhelmed as the parents. We were all struggling to cope with the mental health issues of our young people.


So Hayley and Nikki started a Facebook page thinking they would have 30 or so members. This grew and grew and in 48 hours we had over 1800 members. 

We could see how many parents were struggling to help their children, they didn't know where to turn and get help and the professional services and schools in the area were swamped trying to cope.

So we reached out to schools and the local council and they started listening to us and wanted our views and so YANA was formed.
