Welcome to P.E.A.C.H.Y.

  • Feeling low?
  • Feeling stressed?
  • Feeling that you are not coping?
  • Feeling you can’t face the future?

Many young people have these feelings; it is more common than you think, but not always talked about.


Who to?

Friends and family are usually the first, but if you cannot talk to them, how about teachers, youth workers, Connexions Personal Advisers or adults that you trust. Don’t feel like talking face to face? Then try the phone lines and links on this page. Your health may be at risk so consider getting professional help from your GP, a health professional or counsellor.
