Support for under 18s

Guernsey Mind is a mental health charity and we support those aged 18 and over.

If you are under 18, there are some places you can go for support. 

Talking to people who care about you can be really good for your mental health. But it might be scary, or you might not know where to start.

It can be normal to worry about telling someone how you feel but trying to deal with things on your own can make things feel worse. Talking to someone you trust can help you to:

  • feel like you're not alone
  • feel supported by the people around you
  • find treatment and support options to help with how you're feeling
  • stop things from getting worse
  • find out that other people have been through similar things.

Support in Guernsey

Healthy Minds are now able to take bookings for people aged 17 and above. The easiest way to contact the is through self-referral. This is a free service.

The Youth Commission

At the Youth Commission, we believe that you are more than capable of reaching your full potential, but that life can be challenging and at times, your ability to be your very best self, is beyond your control.  We believe that with the right support, available at the right time, we can help to make the difference that counts.

Also, in addition to our listening support we now offer a clinical team called the Educational Mental Health and Wellbeing (EMHW) Team. The team are trained to do low intensity Cognitive Behaviour Therapy.
