All About Youth


Head's Up

THE AIM OF SYA IS: “To enable young people in Shropshire to have access to quality, affordable and appropriate youth provisions”

As an early intervention project designed by one of the SYA Young Health Champions, the aim of Heads Up is to help young people across Shropshire to understand different aspects of both their own and their peers’ emotional health and wellbeing.

We offer a safe space drop-in service for young people aged 10-18.  It’s a warm and welcoming environment staffed by experienced and friendly youth workers where young people are made to feel comfortable enough to talk to appropriate adults who will listen and offer support. Our team utilises small youth groups to provide young people with the confidence to explore feelings, concerns and aspirations with a view to learning coping strategies for the future. It wouldn’t be an SYA youth support session without a cuppa, so refreshments are always available.

Each week a specific issue related to emotional health and wellbeing is discussed, such as;

  • Stress
  • Stigma
  • Self-esteem
  • General mental health
  • Feeling low
  • Anxiety
