Our Children and Young People page provides support and signposting for a number of issues.
At A Father’s Child Services CIC we offer Counselling and the award winning Outcomes Star mentoring package for holistic well-being and support. We aim to provide ‘Better Outcomes‘ for our children and young people (C&YP) in The West Midlands, particularly those who have been Marginalised by society. We aim to consider young peoples issues and Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE’s) through a trauma informed lense. Young people are experiencing mental health more now in the era of Social Media. Did you know:
- Seven are likely to have been bullied
- Six may be self-harming
- One could have experienced the death of a parent
- 10 are likely to have witnessed their parents seperate
- 3 could have a mental disorder
Record levels of young people are struggling. Academic pressure, social media, bullying, poverty, lack of availability of professional mental health support – all have been named as continuing this epidemic of poor mental health in our young people.
Let’s work together to see how we can help.
