The tidyMinds website was launched in the summer of 2021 to help young people in Neath Port Talbot and Swansea understand any negative feelings they may be experiencing and find the right advice and support.
tidyMinds is an online tool for young people, their families and the professionals who support them. It explores mental health and wellbeing issues, and offers information about how and where support can be accessed. It focuses primarily on young people aged between 12 and 19 years, but also features some information for young people under 12 and up to 25 years of age.
As well as providing clear and consistent information to young people, tidyMinds is also a useful resource for professionals who may be struggling to navigate a complex system.
tidyMinds is an information hub and is not designed to diagnose emotional problems or mental health conditions.
In addition to tidyMinds there is also a new virtual counselling and support for youngsters within our region called Kooth – kooth.com
Children and young people living in Swansea, Neath and Port Talbot will be able to use an anonymous digital counselling and mental health support service.
Designed as a fully safeguarded and pre-moderated community, the British Association of Psychotherapy and Counselling accredited service offers one-to-one, anonymous counselling sessions with fully trained and qualified counsellors and emotional wellbeing practitioners.
Once logged in, users can access message boards and visit a library of self-help magazine style content created by their peers and mental health experts.
