Support for young people

There is a growing collection of websites, support services and apps that have been recommended to us from young people in Coventry and Warwickshire. Some are national services, others are more locally based. Although Coventry and Warwickshire Mind is unable to endorse external organisations we are happy to pass on any recommendations. If you want to recommend any more local or National services we would love to hear about them.
