The Choices to Wellbeing programme provides access to early intervention for young people with mild to moderate mental health concerns.  
You may be a young person or know of a young person who is;

  • stressed out, worries a lot or is starting to avoid situations because they are anxious
  • feeling sad a lot
  • not enjoying the things they used to or lacks motivation
  • finding it hard to deal with the grief of losing someone or their parents separation
  • stressors within the family, not communicating well or getting on with each other

If you can relate to any of the above feelings/emotions then our programme may be right for you as long as you fit our criteria.
