What we will provide to volunteers💸 Reimbursement of costs
Our mission is to improve, preserve and promote good mental health and well-being among young people and their families.
Our vision is that every young person has someone to turn to.
To that end, we have provided counselling for more than 3,100 children, young people and families last year and are currently experiencing unprecedented numbers of referrals.
It is estimated that 1 in 6 young people in England has a significant mental health illness, and that 75% of adults who suffer with mental illness first had symptoms before the age of 24. At TIC+ we are seeing an unprecedented rise in the numbers of young people referring into our service.
Mental health issues are one of the single biggest barriers to achieving academic potential, forming successful and healthy relationships and going on to live happy, resilient adult lives. Mental health remains one of the most misunderstood and underfunded areas of health. This means that although some children and young people will receive the help and support they need, many more will not.
TIC+ offer remote, online, and face to face counselling support. We listen to young people in a way that makes them feel accepted, safe, and valued so they can say what’s on their mind and be really listened to without the fear of being judged. A TIC+ counsellor will work with the young person, helping them develop life-long coping strategies and equip them to move forward.
We work really hard to raise funds to ensure that our service is FREE to every young person who needs counselling and asks for help. We, and all the young people and families we see, are so grateful for your support.
