Mental health support for under 18s

Mental health support for under 18s

Are you under 18 and worried about something or want to learn more about mental health?

Here is some useful advice from Place2Be.

I’m worried about something and I don’t have Place2Be in my school

If someone’s life is in danger, call 999.

If not, talk to an adult that you trust as soon as possible.

We can only help people who go to Place2Be schools, but you might want to talk to:

  • Someone in your family, like a parent or carer
  • Someone at school, like a teacher or counsellor (if your school has a counsellor)
  • Your doctor.

If you are not sure who to talk to:

  • Call Childline on 0800 1111 or
  • Text CONNECT to 85258 to speak to one of Shout's trained volunteers.

 

 

If you don't talk about it, all the sadness will build up inside you. Girl

I’m worried about something and I have Place2Be in my school

If someone’s life is in danger, call 999.

If you’re not at school and you don’t know what to do, talk to an adult that you trust or:

  • Call Childline on 0800 1111 or
  • Text P2B to 85258 to speak to one of Shout's trained volunteers.

If you are at school, speak to the Place2Be person. Maybe you’re feeling sad, confused, scared or angry. Or maybe you’re struggling with something at home or in school. Whatever it is, we can help.

You might be able to book a short appointment with Place2Be during lunchtime or breaktime.

If the problem is really big or you need more time to talk about it, you might be able to see Place2Be more often for counselling.

I want to find out more about mental health

If you have Place2Be in your school, speak to the Place2Be person. They’ll be happy to help.

There are also lots of websites with great advice for young people to find out more about mental health.
