Skeet-Line: A vital mental health guidance and support line, free for children and young people

coming-soonIn the UK and USA there is currently no dedicated mental health guidance and support line for children and young people. At a time when society is finally being urged to openly embrace talking about mental health issues, the next generation is still being failed by society. There is a lack of support for children and young people who want to discuss their thoughts, feelings and worries about mental health issues without fear of judgement.

In Autumn 2017, and as part of our wider movement to support young people, The Shaw Mind Foundation will be launching ‘Skeet-Line UK’ – a free and confidential mental health advice and support line for children and young people. Skeet-Line USA will be implemented in early 2018.

Skeet-Line (named after our loveable young mascot, Skeet) will:

  • Give callers the reassurance of a friendly voice to talk to about any mental health issues and concerns.
  • Give advice and guidance on dealing with different types of mental health issues.
  • Signpost where the caller can get additional help.
  • Enable callers to discuss treatment options.
  • Offer much needed confidential support to those children who are living with parents and family members who have mental health issues.

All of our projects (including our guidance and crisis support helpline) are made possible by your generous support. Thank you.
