Dorset Mind Your Head

Coronavirus update:

At Dorset Mind, we’re taking the Coronavirus pandemic very seriously and realise that it can cause heightened worry in young people, as well as adults. We understand that if you have a history of mental health problems it may be that the current situation is making it worse.

We recognise that the closure of schools, as well as the loss of routine and social connections, are among the key concerns for young people. We are aware that young people who previously might not have needed mental health support, may do so during this period. Therefore we are adapting our services as swiftly as possible to meet your changing needs. Our existing services will be replaced by telephone or video meetings from this time until further notice, and we are developing a suite of online education programmes that can be integrated into your school’s online platform.

Dorset Mind Your Head’s mission is to help the children and young people of Dorset live life mentally healthy.

We support parents, carers and teachers too.

I’m in crisis now and I need urgent help – If you don’t feel you can keep yourself safe right now, seek immediate help. You can call emergency services on 999, or call Childline on freephone 0800 1111. You can also call Samaritans on freephone 116 123 – they’re always open and are there to listen.

I found your session helpful because I now know what Mindfulness is and how I can use it to relax myself before exams.
