Useful Resources for Young People

Having listened to so many young people speak about how they don't know where to go for less 'serious', more day to day and less clinical help with their mental health, States of Mind has collected a list of great organisations for young people to explore. 


THE MIX

The Mix is the UK’s leading support service for young people. We are here to help you take on any challenge you’re facing - from mental health to money, from homelessness to finding a job, from break-ups to drugs. Talk to us via online, social or our free, confidential helpline.

MAC UK

Founded in 2008, MAC-UK successfully engages with some of the UK’s most excluded and deprived young people who are most in need of support but least likely to access it.

CALM 

CAMPAIGN AGAINST LIVING MISERABLY

THE HEARING VOICES NETWORK

If you hear voices HVN can help – we are committed to helping people who hear voices. Our reputation is growing as the limitations of a solely medical approach to voices become better known. Psychiatry traditionally refers to hearing voices as ‘auditory hallucinations’ but research shows that there are many explanations for hearing voices. Many people begin to hear voices as a result of extreme stress or trauma.

We offer information, support and understanding to people who hear voices and those who support them.

YOUTH ACCESS

Youth Access is the national membership organisation for young people's information, advice and counselling services(YIACS). Our projects and activities ensure that links are fostered and sustained between the different sectors impacting on our members’ work with young people.

THE CHILDREN'S SOCIETY

Through our network of services all over the country we can be there for vulnerable children when they feel they have no one they can turn to for help.
