For Parents

Supporting your child

Parents and families can refer their children to Mentor Link by accessing support directly from one of our Wellbeing Centres: contact a member of staff who will discuss our service with you in more detail.

Mentor Link has an excellent reputation of supporting children and young people who may be experiencing difficult times. For example:

  • Family breakdown or crisis
  • Bullying
  • Low Self-esteem
  • Friendship or relationship issues
  • Self-harm
  • Poor behaviour at school or low attendance
  • Disengagement from school, family or friends
  • Anxiety
  • Traumatic loss or bereavement
  • Additional or special needs

One young person writes…

“Thank you Cat (mentor) for everything. You have helped me through with my Dad and stuff like that. Doing this has helped me to understand there are people who will listen to me and give advice. Brilliant.”

One parent writes…

“Thank you Paul (mentor) you have been amazing. I know I have never met you but your support to my son has been invaluable. He has been able to say how he feels openly and honestly without any effects on the family, which was exactly what he needed. Thank you also for getting him back to rugby, it changed a lot for him. This service, and you, are amazing.”
