YoungMinds is the UK’s leading charity committed to improving the emotional wellbeing and mental health of children and young people. Driven by their experiences we campaign, research and influence policy and practice.
We also provide expert knowledge to professionals, parents and young people through our Parents' Helpline, online resources, training and development, outreach work and publications.
Our Parents Helpline is available to offer advice to anyone worried about a child or young person under 25.
You may have questions about a child’s behaviour, emotional wellbeing, or mental health condition. You may have a child who’s already been admitted to CAMHS and have questions about their treatment or want to know what to say to your GP when you visit them.
Our trained advisers are here to give you help and advice, whatever the question.
Under 25? Our helpline is there for parents, but there’s plenty of help and support for young people too whether it’s our expert guides or the various organisations and helplines we work with. Find out where to get help.
