Supporting You

Supporting You Emotional Wellbeing and Resilience Project

Supporting You logo

Supporting You is a 10-week programme for young people aged 13-17 who are beginning to show very early signs of distress due to anxiety or low mood who are not receiving support elsewhere as they would not meet the criteria for a referral.

Supporting You groups will provide 2-hour sessions, once a week for seven weeks. Attendees will learn 12 CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) skills plus a method for planning how to achieve goals. Sessions are run by Youth Workers trained to deliver CBT, supported by Empathy Project Volunteers.


Professionals who work with young people and parents/carers can refer a young person to one of these projects here: Make a referral
