We provide a drop in service on Tuesdays 3.30pm to 4.30pm for new young people ONLY, to come and meet us, pick up some information and register. At 4.30pm we have a social group for young people to meet and keep in touch after they have completed the group sessions.
On Wednesdays and Thursdays we provide hourly group sessions where you will learn techniques to manage your anxiety, stress, anger and depression
A boys only group is on every Monday 4.30-5.30pm
We are offering complementary therapies to young people that require further support that include:
Indian Head Massage
and have a dedicated email and text messaging service, please see above number.
Young People 11 to 18
Parents/carers and Professionals are welcome to the drop-in on Tuesdays at 3.30pm-4.30pm
If you are interested in finding out about TADS by coming to our drop-in on Tuesdays please come to The Core at 3.30pm which will give you time to find out about our service, ask questions and register, which will take about 30 mins. Unfortunately we have to finish the session at 4.30pm as we have another group session starting straight after. Please be mindful of this as we would like to give parents/carers/young people enough time without pressurising you to leave. Thank you for your understanding
