First of all, exhale. You’re not alone.

We know that you’re probably experiencing a multitude of emotions right now.  As a parent, one of the worst things that we can go through is watching our child experience pain.  We feel helpless, useless, sometimes angry when they’re acting out their pain, fearful and often very guilty.

While it’s true that life events can and do impact upon the developing adolescent, unlike our young people.

We don’t believe that everything is your fault.

Youth Interventions Therapy Room

Developmentally, adolescence is a time of storm and stress when the brain is going through a massive process of neurological pruning which often results experimentation and high-risk behaviours.  Often these will pass, but sometimes they don’t.

Then there are times in your child’s life when things happen, and it feels like the emotions they evoke are just too strong and too powerful for them to manage.

How Can We Help

Things were probably at their worse when I couldn’t leave the house.  I’d been battered a couple of times by some girls and I was scared all of the time.

When my mum took me along to meet the Y.I. Team, I only went cause I knew how worried she was.  But I didn’t think it would help me. I’d been to see a lot of people about my mental health and who I was as a person, and no-one listened or understood.  It didn’t feel that way at Youth Interventions.  I can’t say exactly why, but I just felt ….valued.  It never felt like I was being told what I should think or feel and it always felt that the things we did were partly my idea!  They were dead good at signposting me to other organisations as well.  It was a really helpful time of my life, and I’m glad that I met them.
