Children and young people

1 in 10 young people have a mental health diagnosis

It is estimated that around 1 in 10 young people experience poor mental health. Hull and East Yorkshire Mind recognises that it isn’t always easy to talk about emotional and mental wellbeing for fear of being laughed at or worrying about what other people might say. Mind can help.

There are a variety of ways that young people can access help in a non-judgemental and supportive environment:

Groups with other young people

Our groups are ideal for young people aged 11-17 years and are run in both Hull and the East Riding. The groups allow you to meet other young people going through the similar problems, allowing you to build your confidence and make new friends in a fun and relaxed way. The groups are 26 weeks long and focus on a different topic each week. They allow you to learn skills to manage issues such as stress, anxiety and low mood in a supportive environment. The different activities include icebreakers, discussions, group-work, games, and guest speakers on a range of topics. If you’d like to know more, or would like to join one of our groups, contact us by calling 01482 240200. Or email
