What support can we offer to parents?
Centre 33 is a young people’s organisation, and while we recognise that it is very hard to be anxious about your young person’s well-being, we do not offer any direct support to parents or concerned family and friends except in the case of young carers – see here.
However, we can recommend Young Minds for support and guidance for parents. They have lots of information on their website, as well as a helpline – visit: www.youngminds.org.uk/for_parents
An organisation that offers parent-to-parent support is pinpoint – visit them here.
They have some good resources and links for self harm here.
Pinpoint can also support parents of young people with additional needs, including mental health needs.
If you are concerned your young person maybe having suicidal thoughts these websites have a lot of useful information:
The Samaritans also have information on helping a young person you’re worried about
