Young Person (over 18) Resources
Why do you need help?
Sometimes things can seem overwhelming, and it can feel like you can’t cope or it is too difficult to manage how you're feeling. You may simply just be having a bad day, or you may have an ongoing mental health problem that needs support. The important thing is not to try to cope on your own.
When you’re struggling, it’s not good to spend too much time alone, especially if you are feeling low and vulnerable. It’s at times like these that you need to be able to talk to someone. Don’t be afraid to ask for help.
Invictus Wellbeing are unable to offer 24/7 support however there are lots of organisations that can support you through your difficult time.
Please see the list of useful contacts below:
