Emotional and mental health support for children and young people

If you are having mental health problems, you are not alone. 1 in 4 of us will have problems with our mental health at some point in our lives.

Sometimes it can feel like we don't have any control over what we think or how we feel. At these times we many need to ask for help to make us feel better.

Getting support

The following services provide mental health and wellbeing assistance and guidance to young people, families, and professionals in the Wokingham borough.
