Young people’s mental health and the impact they have on young lives have never been more prominent in the national debate. Our counselling services and training are nationally-respected and we have a long history of offering effective early help to many young people.

Our service are offered in our centres where young people can meet privately with one of our highly skilled team of counsellors. We work closely with schools across Devon and Plymouth providing counselling in schools and also training staff. And where young people are looking for help on-line we have developed a close working relationship with Kooth who specialise in on-line counselling.

We give straight-forward support for problems that young people might be facing. Young Devon has been offering help for over 20 years. Our staff are hugely experienced, will listen, help and never judge. With specialist Accommodation, Sexual Health and Counselling Teams, we have the resources that young people need to help young people come to terms with the challenges that they face.
