Supporting the Island’s mental health

Through early intervention and prevention, we support children and young people up to the age of 25 via our educational programme in schools and one-to-one therapeutic support. We also provide a suite of wellbeing solutions to businesses and community groups to support a variety of issues including mental health training, an employee counselling service and workplace wellbeing audits.

How we’ve helped so far


How we help

Mental health training

We equip people with the skills and resources to support someone struggling with their mental health.

Our work in schools

In-school mental health support and educational programme to meet schools’ needs for children, teachers and parents.

Employee Counselling Service

A confidential employee benefit providing counselling support and advice on issues that might be impacting employee wellbeing and performance.

Supporting parents & carers

As part of our work in schools, we help support parents and carers support children’s mental health with sessions throughout the year.

Why what we do is important

We firmly believe that mental health education should be embedded from an early age and that everyone should have access to effective mental health support at the point of need, not the point of availability

Our outstanding mental health support for young people is provided free of charge, but to do this, we rely on charitable fundraising and your help. Your support makes it possible.

Get involved!

There’s lots of ways you can support us to remove the stigma surrounding mental health whether that’s taking part in an event, fundraising for us or involving your company.
