Help and support is available to anyone between 18 and 30 from the area, after the partnership was established between the well-known Mill Street charity and the city’s Mind Map organisation.
Young people will be able to access a range of services from one to one counselling to group support with what Florrie chief executive Anne Lundon stressed was not a ‘one size fits all’ service.
“As a charity we experienced first-hand how difficult it was to try and access face to face counselling services on behalf of young people who were struggling during lockdown – that’s when we started to have conversations with The Mind Map.
“The Mind Map were open to delivering a counselling service that young people said they needed, whether this was group support, peer to peer support with counselling guidance or one-to-one counselling support.”

She adds: “This partnership is not a ‘one size fits all’ type of counselling delivery. The wonderful thing about partnering with The Mind Map is they are allowing young people to guide the professional support based on what they tell us they need.”
Anne says lockdown has been particularly hard on young people: “We recognise that some support structures young people had outside the home or school environment suddenly stopped when we went into lockdown.
“One of the things we started to realise was how places like youth clubs played an important part in the wellbeing of young people, and we quickly recognised how socialising, keeping in touch with friends and taking part in organised activities impacts on the physical and mental wellbeing of young people.”
“The pandemic is putting a huge strain on young people’s mental health. According to a Prince’s Trust report, half of 16 to 25-year-olds said their mental health has worsened since the start of the pandemic.
“Young people are understandably anxious at the moment and need increased mental health support. They’re dealing with disrupted education, a depleted jobs market and distance from their friends.
“With 75% of adults with a diagnosable mental health condition experiencing their first symptoms before they’re 24, early intervention is vital.”
Anne continues: “Young people from low-income families are four times more likely to struggle with their mental health, which is an alarming statistic.
“Working with The Mind Map to provide our young people with free counselling, should they require it, is a key part of our health and wellbeing strategy.
“The partnership – enabled by funding from The National Lottery – complements the work we’re currently doing to support young people through our Youth Hub, a creative and educational space offering a range of activities, opportunities and support including work experience volunteering, homework groups, music and sports.”
