|I am a student and want some guidance and information:
- If you have concerns about your or a friend's mental health then please talk to your tutor, a subject teacher you know well or a member of the pastoral team. Although we don’t have all the answers, we are able to provide in-school support and links to external organisations.
- Two national organisations that we often recommend are Kooth and Young Minds, both of whom specialise in free, safe and anonymous support for young people.
Beam Drop IN Sessions
WHAT CAN BEAM HELP WITH?
Anything relating to emotional wellbeing!
Our team is made up of experienced wellbeing practitioners & wellbeing volunteers who will take the time to listen to whatever it is that is troubling young people. We aim to boost the resilience of young people by helping them develop coping skills for when life presents challenges.
Referrals are not needed to access Beam.
Young people age 14+ can contact us directly if they want to access support.
Young people under 14 years old will need a parent/carer to do this on their behalf.
