Time 2 Talk
As an early intervention project designed by one of the SYA Young Health Champions, the aim of Time to Talk 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;
- General mental health
- Feeling low
