Situation

The Proportion of young people aged 16-19 years with clinically significant mental health problems rose from 10% to 14% between 1993 and 2000 (Singleton, 2001) and it appears that it is still on the rise. Young people from their 18th birthdays are thrust in to adult services and the support structures that have helped contain their difficulties are withdrawn. This can lead to breakdown and crisis which puts a young person at risk of social exclusion, unemployment, substance misuse and much more

Solution

BCYP provides therapeutic support that understands the nature of adolescence and the transition to adulthood. In this way we are able to support young people based on developmental and individual needs (rather than arbitrary dates) and therefore we can provide continuity and stability. Our services promote engagement, not only with therapy but with other appropriate services. Our therapy aims to address the cause of emotional or mental health difficulties and so achieve profound & lasting change
