Youth Services

**UPDATE: We’ve reached 1/3 of the target – thank you to everyone who has helped us get there**

There are currently very few youth services specifically designed to support Young People’s mental health in Dorset.  But there is however, a large number of young people in desperate need of help.

How much will it cost?

In order to support young people aged 14 to 25 in the local area with mental health problems we are developing a number of youth groups and services across Dorset.  We estimate the cost of setting up these services and running them for one year to be in excess of £55,000.

Proposed services will include:

  • Young person’s professionally facilitated mental health groups
  • Mentoring / befriending service
  • Telephone / email help line
  • Professionally facilitated on-line social media groups
  • Local mental health information and signposting to other agencies – for both under 18’s and over 18’s (see links opposite)
  • Education in Mind – information and training to schools / colleges.

Please help us provide these important mental health services for young people by fundraising, volunteering with us or supporting us with grants.
