Beam is an emotional wellbeing drop-in for children and young people under 25.
Beam sessions give young people the opportunity talk with trained practitioners who can give practical support, advice and suggestions as to how they can manage their thoughts and feelings.
They can support various emotional wellbeing issues – here are a few:
Feeling anxious or having a low mood;
Stress and worry;
Issues with sleeping;
Managing feelings of anger and frustration;
Struggling with self-esteem.
They will signpost you to other services or organisations who can support you as well.
Parent and carer support can be given in conjunction with a young person.
