Our Wellbeing service is nationally recognised, and has been running for over 20 years. Our staff are hugely experienced, will listen, help and never judge. We give straightforward support for problems that young people might be facing.

Are you looking for support with your mental health and wellbeing?
Do you live in Devon, Plymouth or Torbay, and are 11-25 years old?

If you answer yes to the above, there are several ways you can contact us for help:

(IMPORTANT: If you are enquiring on the behalf of a young person, we ask that the young person knows about this contact and consents to talking to us)

One of our qualified therapists will then give you a call for a Wellbeing conversation; this is a chance to talk about what is happening for you, your feelings and what support you would like. Our therapists will then suggest support that might help you. This support could be some therapy, such as counselling or CBT, a chance to come to a Young Devon Wellbeing Café, or maybe we might know of other services that could help you, such as online options, like Kooth.

We offer support face-to-face, or remotely via Zoom.

We hope to get in touch within 5 weeks, but please check out our Wellbeing Toolkit whilst you wait.
