Hello and a massive welcome to Beautiful Minds! We are a new counselling service that is dedicated to improving mental health for children and young people in Powys.
It is estimated that 1 in 8* children and young people suffer from mental health problems, which if left untreated may continue into adulthood.
Research suggests that early intervention is critical in reducing risk factors, and for the prevention of further mental health problems.
We understand how difficult it is for our young people to access mental health support, specifically within an appropriate timescale, which is why one of our aims is to reduce waiting times, allowing our young people to be seen sooner.
Looking after our mental health is just as important as our physical health, and we want to challenge the stigma around seeking support. It is absolutely okay to not be okay and choosing to take care of yourself can only have a positive impact.
So feel free to take a wander around our sparkly new website. We are looking to update our blog with lots of information, tips, and support that you may find useful. And don’t forget you can also keep up to date with us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram & Pinterest!
