Here at The Mix, we know this can be a challenging time for many of you and that it’s important that you have help in dealing with the impact that coronavirus is having on everyday life. The Mix will remain open, and our online community will provide essential peer-to-peer and expert-led support.

Dramatic media headlines, coping with illness and adjusting to lots of change in normal routines can sometimes be stressful and make you feel anxious, especially if you already have other issues impacting your life. For those of you who are already living with existing mental health issues, we know that youth services are crucial, and that’s why we want to spread the message that The Mix are always here.

Our team of experts and trained volunteers are working to provide reassurance, support and advice for anyone who needs it and will continue to do so. We want to get the message out that if you need to talk about anything at all, you can head to our discussion boards and find an active community of other young people who can help you chat through their worries, signpost to helpful information and find solutions to your problems.

If you or someone you know is struggling, please head to The Mix. Our services are free, confidential and open to any young person who needs them:
