Youth mental health services discussed on BBC Radio Solent

ChrisIDChris’ timely interview followed a piece on the breakfast show regarding youth services in the South West.  In it, Chris describes Dorset Mind’s plans to establish various services for young people. These include a helpline to signpost both parents and young people to the statuary services or charities that an help them.  She also mentioned our ideas for a young befriending service and a safe forum that is supervised by qualified staff. We need help to fund these services.  Dorset Mind estimate it will take £55k to set up these facilities, of which we have raised £6k so far.  We have  started to work with schools and take our ‘Education in Mind’ programme to various establishments.
