Snow-Camp have launched Stop.Breathe.Think, a mental health campaign offering free counselling support to young people across the UK.
For the last few months Snow-Camp have put their skis and boards away and have focused on delivering much needed mental health support to young people during these difficult times. Through Stop.Breathe.Think young people can access 1-1 counselling sessions. Youth workers, social workers, teachers and parents are also able to refer young people for support.
As part of the campaign Snow-Camp have launched a text support service in partnership with Shout. Here young people can text BREATHE to 85258, to speak to a trained volunteer first, before accessing the counselling support.
Stop.Breathe.Think also encourages young people to sign up for a series of mindfulness tutorials, which provide mindfulness techniques and information to help young people manage their emotions.
Snow-Camp have been providing mental health support to young people on their programmes since 2017 and they’re now delighted to make this additional support available to all young people, at a time when they need it the most.
What makes their support different?
– The text service is available 24/7.
– Unlike many other free counselling services, there are no waiting times and the young person and/or the person referring the young person is contacted within 24 hours.
– They are working with a team of 30 counsellors who specialise in different issues. So, a young person can get the right targeted and specialised support from the start.
– Counselling support can take place virtually, with options for face to face contact post-Covid.
Snow-Camp are reaching young people in many creative ways from youth-led artwork, billboards and social media promotion to support from leading youth music platform LinkUpTV and rap music artist Nito NB.
Snow-Camp want as many young people as possible to access this service and they are asking the snowsports community to share information about their service far wide and to support the campaign in any way possible. Thank you.
