Mental health focus is a good TACTIC

The focus for this year’s World Mental Health Day (October 10) at the town council’s TACTIC centre is on “talking”.

Being brave enough to say how you are feeling out loud can be difficult and scary if you are feeling overwhelmed or not used to being listened to. Talk-Time is a unique service that can help young people who may need that extra person to listen to them.

Talk-Time offers confidential youth counselling on Thursdays and Fridays in partnership with Relate, where young people can gain individual support by a trained therapeutic counsellor.

TACTIC (Teenage Advice and Information Centre) youth workers can offer one-to-one advice and guidance on many issues that may be affecting young people and during its awareness programme based on World Mental Health Day, the centre will be promoting its Talk-Time provision.
