Useful links to further mental health support

The Valley Trust believes that the benefit of one to one Counselling by experienced and trained therapists is often the best way of reaching out and supporting vulnerable children.  However there are many funded organisations who offer lots of different types of assistance to children and young adults.

For your information, we have listed a few of them below.
