Youoth workers work at night and can help when you need it.

You can see them when you need to and not  just put on a waiting list. They can give lots of differrent help for mental health.

    They can be good for just chatting to when your going through a tough time. They are someone who isn't emotionally involved and out with the family so that makes it a bit easier. Youth Workers are always spending time around young people and get to know the young person well and build up a relationship. They can also signpost you to different services within the community that can offer help and support.

    The group discussion about mental health support at Muirhouse Millennium Centre on Monday 26th November 2018 agreed that Youth Workers from across the voluntary and third sector where vital for mental health support.

    The group described the range of support they have had from various organisations, including one to one emotional support, group therapy, play, art and music therapies and counselling services.

    The young people also noted that third sector organisations have also help bring young people together for peer to peer support and that youth workers and volunteers are trained to ‘look out for’ behaviours that may signal an issue with a young person’s mental health.

    The young people mentioned that the support they have received from the voluntary and third sector has made them feel ‘accepted, relieved, comfortable and safe.’
