We are still here to help during this difficult time.

We offer a range of services for young people, including our listening ear and advice, all of which we have adapted to ensure we can continue to offer this vital support.

CYP Advice Service 

Our Advice service is taking new referrals. It is for those who are having difficulty with benefits, debts and housing issues. To make an appointment with one of our advice workers please ring 0161 769 5732 or email

Peer Support Services

Our Peer Support Service offers group sessions to young people aged 18-24 experiencing mental health difficulties. These sessions will allow young people to support one another weekly. Further information can be found here.

Community Mental Health Practitioner (CMHP)

Our CMHP service supports young people aged 15-18 to manage their emotional wellbeing. In these sessions we provide support with common mental health issues, such as anxiety, stress, depression, low self-esteem and managing difficult feelings. For more information email 

The Resilience Project

The Resilience Project is a one-day course designed for young people aged 16-25 who are not in education, employment or training and provides support around taking care of emotional wellbeing whilst seeking opportunities. The course covers issues such as managing anxiety, developing routine and learning from rejection. For more information email 


Unfortunately due to the surge in demand for Manchester Mind’s Young People’s counselling service during the ongoing pandemic, counselling service waiting times have increased significantly. As a result, we have made the difficult decision to temporarily close our waiting list to new referrals, to be reviewed every 4 weeks.
