STOP BREATHE THINK
ANXIOUS? STRESSED? STRUGGLING?
IT’S OK TO ASK FOR HELP
With mental health services under strain from rising cases of anxiety and depression in young people, Stop.Breathe.Think. provides free counseling programs for young people in need. The charity also provides ‘well-being drop-in’ sessions, which are short 30-minute calls with a fully trained on-call counsellor. Funds provided by Delancey – the property company founded by Jamie Ritblat, which is overseeing the redevelopment of the new Elephant & Castle town centre and which is a long-term supporter of the charity behind this initiative – will help ensure young people, aged under 21, in the local area will have access the vital support they need.
Support is easy to access and the campaign is being promoted via a QR code on Stop.Breathe.Think. posters that can be scanned by those who require assistance. The site welcomes young people to the service and provides a brief explainer video to illustrate precisely what will happen if they need support. They can then proceed to book their first session, where they will add their details, including their postcode, so operations can confirm who they are helping and where they are from.
The intake counsellor will match young people to their specific counsellor for the next 6 weekly online sessions based on their needs. Throughout the journey, well-being sessions and 24/7 text support will be available.
