Mental Health

During the coronavirus lockdown you may need additional support - we have put together a Mental Health and Wellbeing guide.

Here are some useful resources to support mental health and wellbeing (click on the headers):

Kooth
Kooth provides online mental health services for children, young people and adults. Kooth, from XenZone, is an online counselling and emotional well-being platform for children and young people, accessible through mobile, tablet and desktop and free at the point of use.

MindMate - Emotional wellbeing and mental health
If you’re a young person, MindMate can help you understand the way you’re feeling and find the right advice and support.

Teen Connect
Teen Connect is a helpline for 13-18 year-olds living in the Leeds area. They can offer up to an hour of support either by phone or online chat. You can have up to an hour with one of their trained staff each night to talk about what you’re going through.
