LGBTQ+ Youth Groups
Yorkshire MESMAC is a sexual health organisation, with LGBTQ+ youth groups in Harrogate and Selby. Visit their website for more information about when they meet and how to get in contact.
Getting More Help
Talking to family and friends about your worries can help you feel more supported. You might want to talk to someone outside the family like a GP, teacher or mentor at school, or even a friend’s parent. Choose someone you trust and if you find it difficult to talk about how you are feeling, you could write them a letter or send them a text. Support is also available through Childline, Compass BUZZ, Kooth and Recovery College Online.
Getting Urgent Help
If you’ve seriously injured yourself or taken an overdose call 999 or get immediate medical advice from NHS 111.
If you are in a crisis and feel like you can’t cope, speak to somebody straight away. See the Urgent Help page for contact details for the North Yorkshire single point of access Crisis Service.
