Youth Emotional Support (YES) service

How to access free support at selected FindItOut Centres.

Youth Emotional Support (YES) is a free service for young people aged 11-18 who have issues that are affecting their wellbeing. (We must receive the referral before the young person turns 18.)

The issues we can help with include:

  • self-harming
  • low mood and mild depression
  • anxiety
  • low self-esteem.

The type of help we can offer includes one-to-one or online counselling, group work or intensive support working. We can also tell you about other agencies that can support and advise you.

How to access the service

Visit any FindItOut Centre to discuss how we could help you. Some centres may need you to make an appointment for an assessment so please try to call before dropping in. Young people can also be referred directly to YES by their GP or the School Nurse Service.

What happens next?

Once you have attended a FindItOut centre or we have received a referral we will arrange to meet with you to discuss your issues and agree a way forward. We can also tell you about other organisations who may be able to help.
