Young People Encouraged To Use Early Mental Health & Counselling Support Service


Young people in Wiltshire are being reminded support is out there if they are struggling with emotional wellbeing during COVID19.

Wiltshire Council and BSW CCG commissioned charity Barnardo's earlier this year to provide advice for 5-18-year-olds who may be experiencing:

-Low mood
-Panic, stress, worry and low level anxiety
-Problems sleeping
-Anger difficulties
-Low self-esteem
-Relationship difficulties with family or friends
-Relationship problems at school or in the community (including bullying)
-Feeling overwhelmed by pressure; for example in relation to school work

Due to the lockdown, much of the service has moved online, so young people can access ongoing support online or by phone.

Help is available through the On Your Mind website, which provides useful information and support. A webchat facility and webinars for parents are currently being developed for the site.

The charity will also be asking young people for their input into activities to promote five steps to wellbeing.
