Youth counselling service
To support the children and young people of the RAF Family we have launched a specialist counselling service. Whether you or your partner are currently serving in the RAF or have previously served, we are here to help.
One in eight children may have experienced a mental health issue such as anxiety or depression.
The service, provided through Relate, is available for children and young people aged 11 to 18 and on a case by case basis for those aged 5 to 10. The service offers support on a wide range of wellbeing and mental health issues such as:
- Low mood and depression
- Behavioural issues
- Managing family separation
- Family change – divorce, separation, bereavement or new stepfamilies
- Low self-esteem
- Academic pressure
