At the moment Young People's emotional health and wellbeing/mental health seems to be in crisis and every day brings a fresh news story or report about the pressures our young people face.
Every SAVVY Young Person Friendly Service has a role to play in helping to :
"Develop the resilience of Young People, empowering them to identify and access the resources they require to feel positive about themselves and promote wellbeing, where they are and where they can get to"
