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:  Hull and East Yorkshire Mind’s young people’s group can help you find different ways of coping with life’s stresses. It introduces you to people who are on your side to help when times get tough. Group work offers the opportunity to meet people with similar interests. We will help you with the tools you need to plan for the future and achieve any dreams or goals you might have.
