Support during the Covid-19 crisis

The COVID-19 crisis has also caused a sudden change in routine and ‘normal life’, there is a huge uncertainty of the future, Young people are facing many different challenges.  We cannot support young people that have been diagnosed with depression and anxiety, the work we do is prevention and work with young people at the early stages.  

Spirals support sessions involve a confidential setting.  A volunteer of Spiral will listen attentively to each person.  They offer them the time, empathy and respect they need to express their feelings and perhaps understand themselves and the situation from a different perspective.  
The aim of the support sessions are to move forward and learn new ways to deal with difficult situations.
