Young People: CALL, TEXT or EMAIL for emotional support

The Mix is a UK support service for young people (ages 25 and below). They provide free, confidential helplines and counselling services for any challenges faced by young people - "from mental health to money, from homelessness to finding a job, from break-ups to drugs".


Support can be accessed via the helpline. Trained supports are ready to talk about any issue, just call 0808 808 4994 from 4pm to 11pm Monday-Saturday.


To access the service via email, please follow this link and fill out the form: https://www.themix.org.uk/get-support/speak-to-our-team/email-us.


For the most immediate support, they offer a crisis text message service. Text THEMIX to 85258 to access support.


Alternatively, they offer a group chat service whereby young people can access different online groups to talk for fun or for support. These include


Young carer's chat: Chat online to other young carers and find support from an understanding community.

General chat: A light hearted online group whereby you can talk to others about anything - a great space for distraction and a chance to unwind.

Support chat: A space to give and get support online from other young people going through similar experiences.

Support circle: A small group chat for no more than 5 people where each take it in turn to get support about whatever is on your mind. Young people can also sign up as listeners if they enjoy helping others.
