No Limits is proud to be part of Hampshire Youth Access (HYA), a new service increasing access to support around emotional wellbeing and mental health issues for children and young people across Hampshire. The phased roll out of HYA’s new service has begun, with face to face counselling for 5-10 year olds now being delivered across the county.
From now until September, HYA is building and training its new team, creating an online presence and resources for young people and adults, and setting up internal structures and lines of communication.
From early 2017, HYA will be accepting referrals for face to face counselling for 5 – 10 year olds and for therapeutic groups, both across Hampshire.
Online counselling and resources will be available from early 2017.
More information will be coming soon – keep an eye on our rapidly developing online channels
