Support for Young People

Mikeysline has always supported young people, but we have now launched a new service, specifically for young people in the late afternoons, after school/college commitments.  Young people can also always access our text based support in the evenings 7 days a week.


What do we offer?

  • A safe and confidential place to talk and be listened to for any issues that are causing you difficulties, distress or impacting on your mental health
  • 1:1 face to face appointments  up to 45 mins per session with a support worker (all online currently) - Mondays to Saturdays
  • Access to our text-based options every evening of the week in addition to the above 
  • Support options may include supporting you to learn coping skills to help regulate your mood and emotions and signposting you to other groups/organisations that may be able to provide additional support.
  • Group sessions that will include creative activities as well as learning new skills to help you manage your feelings. Dates for these are currently being set.

You will be asked for some basic ID info  when you contact us - your initials or first name, date of birth, postcode and gender. This information is crucial for us to obtain as we have a duty of care to you if you contact us.  It remains confidential. Please do not let this put you off from accessing support when you need it. We ask for the same info from everyone who contacts us and we cannot provide support without it.
