Turn2me Youth is an online youth mental health service to help young people (12-18) through tough times.
Turn2me Youth is run by the Irish mental health charity Turn2me.org that provides professional mental health support to adults in Ireland for the last 10 years. In 2019 Turn2me.org joined forces with ReachOut Ireland to create Turn2me Youth for young people 12-18.
The aim of Turn2me Youth is to make getting professional mental health support online as easy as possible for everybody in Ireland.
What do we do?
Reflecting the need for reliable information on anything which could affect someone’s mental health, Turn2me Youth supports those going through a tough time.
Emphasis is placed on peer support and the principle that we all know someone going through a tough time. Creating a supportive atmosphere where people feel understood because they realise other people are going through the same things. We engage in a space natural to most of us now – online.
How do we do this?
- Quality assured mental health information approved by both young people and our clinical team of mental health professionals
- Personal stories by young people sharing their experience
- Community articles exploring relevant topics; celebrity stories with mental health connections, seasonal issues, mental health events etc.
- We involve young people every step of the way through our Youth Network of volunteers who provide valuable insight and are vital in making Turn2me Youth as relevant and helpful as possible for young people
Turn2me Youth is working on providing more professional mental health supports for young people in this space in 2020.
