The Teenfocus service provides a comprehensive support service, inlcuding out of hours access, to teenagers aged 13-18 years who are experiencing emotional or behavioural difficulties.
What does Teenfocus do?
The service aims to intervene to provide young people with the necessary supports to promote psychological resilience and maintain their psychological well being, regardless of social or emotional background.
Putting you in control
Teenfocus is a service for and owned by young people, which means:
- The young person can decide if they want to meet with us
- They can decide how long they want to see us for and when the visits will stop
- The young person works with us to put a plan in place which will provide support to them in overcoming difficulties in their lives
Parent Mentoring Programmes
Teenfocus believes that given the necessary support frameworks young people can develop psychological resilience and overcome their difficulties.
