Early InterventionOur Early Intervention Service is for young people who might be struggling to cope with their feelings or things that are happening in their lives. 


We can all sometimes start to worry more, start feeling sad or upset more than usual, start feeling angry or just feel bad about ourselves; this can be because of an upsetting event in our lives or can happen for no reason at all.


Early Intervention helps you learn about what you may be thinking or feeling and teaches you skills to be able to cope better with how you feel or what you are thinking about.


To be able to attend Early Intervention you will need to speak to someone at a Drop-in or Sort-it session first.

What will happen?

You will have a 20 minute appointment on the same day and time each week, for 5-6 weeks, with the same worker.


They will find out what has been going on for you and will help you to look at ways to help you cope better. This might include doing different activities in the sessions and being given activities or worksheets to do at home. 

Who should I bring with me?

Any young person under 13 years old will need permission from their parent or carer to attend Early Intervention. 


Your parent or carer will need to bring you to your sessions but they do not have to stay in the session with you. 

  • The reason we ask this is to make sure someone is aware you are coming to get help from us and so we can work together to keep you safe whilst you are here and when you leave.

Who do I contact?

At your Drop-in or Sort-it session, you will be able to speak to your worker about Early Intervention. If you both agree it may be useful for you they will pass your details on to a member of staff who will contact your parent or carer to arrange your first appointment.

If you have any questions about Early Intervention you can ask your parent or carer to call us on 0161 330 9223 to find out more information.
