Headlight provides a friendly, non-clinical space for young people who are experiencing emotional and mental health issues and their families.
Headlight delivers peer support through:
- Fortnightly facilitated sessions for young people aged between 13 to 24 years in Axminster and Ottery St Mary
- Access to one to one support and guidance during sessions
- A monthly support group in Axminster for parents and carers of young people affected by mental health issues from across the south west
- Information, signposting, advice and advocacy on mental health and wellbeing related issues to young people and their families by telephone, email and face to face.
Anyone can refer a young person to our peer support service - a parent, teacher, GP or a young person can self refer.
