The pandemic didn’t just disrupt their social lives, it disrupted their education, and their psychological development.

As a result, the mental health crisis affecting young people is so acute the NHS has described it as a “second pandemic”.

Heady of policy and public affairs at the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy Martin Bell said of the situation: “Many children and young people are in distress, but aren’t always able to access timely support from local NHS services.

“Funded school counselling is vital now to ease the strain on those services, to support our children and young people before they reach crisis point, and to help the many more who may be suffering in silence.”
