Self-help websites for young people

At Westminster Primary School we take the wellbeing and mental health of our pupils seriously and we would encourage all pupils to come and speak to a member of staff about any issues or problems no matter how small. Sometimes, pupils want to speak to somebody that is not connected to the school, so we have put together the following links and info to external agencies that work with children and young people.

Kooth

Free, safe and anonymous online support for young people.

Young minds

We’re leading the fight for a future where all young minds are supported and empowered, whatever the challenges. We’re here to make sure they get the best possible mental health support and have the resilience to overcome life’s difficulties.

The crisis in children and young people’s mental health is real and it is urgent. More children and young people than ever before are reaching out for help with their mental health. But for those who take that brave step, help is much too hard to find.
