Emotional Wellbeing

The aim of the lowdown's wellbeing service is to support young people aged 11-25 and their parents / guardians / carers to promote a positive sense of emotional wellbeing.

Our service offers free:
  • Drop-in 1:1 emotional support sessions
  • Information, signposting and self-help materials
  • Activity based workshops
  • Peer support groups
Young Persons Crisis Cafés

We are now running a Crisis Café on Monday evenings between 4-8pm at Café Track in Northampton town centre. If you need support with your mental health or find yourself in crisis then we’re here to listen and help you in your time of need.

Our drop-in sessions have professional mental health workers who can offer you a safe space to talk and to be listened to. We’d also like you to tell us what you need from us, and how best we can help and support you in times of crisis.

The café is for young people aged 12-18 years, there is no need to call, and last registration is 7.30pm.


Our drop-in offers one-off face to face confidential emotional wellbeing sessions, in which our Wellbeing Navigators will offer support with coping strategies, resilience building, self-help resources or signposting to in-house services or to other services in the area.

These are not counselling sessions, but do not hesitate to drop in if you are on our waiting list for counselling and need emotional support.

Parents, guardians and carers can also drop in if they are responsible for a young person who is under 25. The young person does not necessarily have to be using our services already.

Please see our information leaflets for current drop-in times:


Look out for more information on our wellbeing workshops which will be launching soon.
