Coronavirus update - online support
42nd Street, is offering help to tackle mental health issues that young people may be facing during the coronavirus pandemic by providing:
• Weekly messages, which involves you sending messages to a worker throughout the week, and receiving a message back each week, at a time you both agree on. You can check your messages whenever works for you, and reply whenever is best for you.
• Live text chat; which are regular sessions booked in with your worker where you are both online, talking via text chat for around an hour, similar to how a face to face appointment would work.
If you know a young person; a friend, a student, or a family member who could benefit from this service, get in touch with 42nd Street at onlinesupport.42ndstreet.org.uk
