* 42nd Street

If you are aged 13 to 25, living in Manchester, Salford, Trafford or Tameside/Glossop and under stress, or know someone who is, we might be the service for you.

At 42nd Street we believe that a range of different approaches can be effective in responding to young people's mental health needs and this is reflected in the variety of services we offer.

As well as therapy, counselling and individual support, we offer a wide range of youth work interventions including groups and arts-based projects. All our services to young people are free and confidential.

The 42nd Street team recognises that many of you feel disempowered, that some services are difficult for you to identify with and access and that your mental health and personal difficulties can be made worse by the health, social, cultural and economic inequalities that you might experience.

We will do all we can to make you feel listened to, valued, included, safe and unique.

What support can I get?

One to one support

We offer a variety of one to one support options and in addition to face to face and video sessions, you can also access sessions through our online webchat support from wherever you feel the most comfortable.

We also have an online drop-in you can access each Wednesday.
