Councillor Rebecca Hares, Executive Member for Health and Community Liaison, said: "Young people face an array of pressures that can affect their mental health and wellbeing; from academic stress to navigating social media and the weight of trying to ‘fit in’, it can sometimes feel overwhelming. That’s why it’s so important that young people have the support and resources they need to navigate these obstacles.

“The 'Everything OK' website has been specifically designed with young people in mind and with their input, and offers a wide range of resources, including articles, self-help tools, and contact information for local support services. By providing easily accessible resources, I hope we can break down any barriers that stand in the way of young people seeking support, and ensure they prioritise their mental health and wellbeing.”
