The aim of the lowdown‘s wellbeing service is to support young people aged 11-25 years and their loved ones 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
- A young person’s Mental Health service
- Activity based workshops
- Peer support groups
Drop-In (currently being offered remotely)
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
- signposting to in-house services or to other services in the area
These are not counselling sessions or suitable for someone in crisis, 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.
Espresso Yourself Wellbeing Café
We are now running a Wellbeing Café on Monday and Friday evenings between 4pm and 8pm at our Kingswell Street building in Northampton. The Espresso Yourself Café is for young people aged 11-18 years and their parents/carers.
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 be listened to. There will also be group activities & peer support as well as a Parent Zone downstairs. 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.
If you’d like to come along to the Espresso Yourself Café you can either drop in during opening times or call us on 01604 634385 to book an appointment with a support worker.
