Early Help 4 Mental Health

We provide easier access to professional mental health consultation and advice. 

Everyone has mental health. Just like physical health, there can be times when things feel good, and times when things can feel difficult.

Mental health can be made worse by many things around us such as exam stress or relationships with others.  It might be, right now, that a young person is finding things difficult. They might be worrying about someone, or perhaps something doesn’t feel right. At Young Devon we want to help.

Please contact us on the links below, and see what we do that might be right for the young person you care for.

The Early Help for Mental Health (EH4MH) service is delivered by three organisations, Young Devon, Kooth, and Virgin care working together to support school staff, children, young people and their families with emotional wellbeing and mental health needs.

If you're worried a young person is suffering with problems with their mental health, there are people here to help you..

We can help young people work out what is going on, how to manage their feelings and what to do if they feel like thing's are getting on top of them...

Someone on our team is always available to chat, click on the links below for contact information...

There is a FREE online counselling service with KOOTH. If the young person you know is not ready to talk to someone face 2 face, tell them about KOOTH. 

Counselling for Plymouth Schools

vcard_DSC_0199tall.JPGYoung People’s Counselling is now running at a number of schools in the area.

This is for young people in Plymouth schools aged 11-18. If you would like face-2-face counselling you can:

  • Call Young Devon free on 08082 810 155
  • Go to or click Visit Our Webpage below to complete an online enquiry form
  • Pick up an enquiry form from the school and complete your details and we will make contact with you
  • Ask any of the teachers or support team in your school and they can put us in touch
  • Someone else can contact us on your behalf and support your enquiry if that would help.

We can see a young person in school or in the community. There is online support for young people: Go to, sign up on-line and access self help tools, moderated live chat and our online team of counsellors.

People come to counselling for all sorts of reasons - from difficulties at home, work or school to feelings of depression and anxiety which have no apparent cause. Counselling can give a young person the time and space to explore their feelings, discuss your situation, and find a way through. A Counsellor does not judge and will not tell anyone what to do. Everything that is said is confidential.
