We Need Your Help: Young People’s Focus Group Invitation


Now, more than ever, we know that young people are struggling with their mental health.

We are still here to help during this difficult time and are keen to spread awareness of the services we have available, and want to ensure that our services are the right ones.

We need some help to enable us to do this.

We would like to speak to young people (age 15-25) living in Manchester to find out:

  • The best ways to interact with young people to raise awareness of our services
  • What support is needed at the current time and how best to deliver it
  • What support young people may need from us in the future, helping us shape our services

We are planning on hosting our next focus groups on:

  • Thursday 6 May
  • Thursday 3 June
  • Thursday 8 July
  • Thursday 5 August

Please help us spread the word.

If you would like to be involved in one of our focus groups (and possibly other research), or have any questions

Please send your name, address, age and email address. 

Manchester Mind’s services have all been adjusted to allow young people to access support from home. These services include counselling, advice (for benefits, housing, work, study or money worries), virtual wellbeing café and listening ear service (telephone support to help manage difficult feelings). You can find out more here.


We know that the lifting of all existing restrictions with regard to COVID-19 will for many people be a relief and be welcome, but for others it will be causing great anxiety.

As an organisation we need to ensure that we are managing these changes carefully and have a service update detailing how we will be responding over the coming months.
