For Mental Health
According to NHS Digital, 1 in 6 children aged five to sixteen were identified as having a probably mental health problem in July 2021. This is a massive increase from 1 in 9 in 2017. This is five children in every classroom.
At ASK PIP Charity, we have found that it is essential to incorporate counselling with education because of how difficult it can be for a child or young person to learn if they are silently struggling with their mental health.
Nearly half of 17 to 19 years old with a diagnosable mental health disorder have self-harmed or attempted suicide at some point, rising to 52% for young females (NHS Digital 2018).
Counselling is not always affordable to everyone. At ASK PIP Charity, we aim to provide free or subsidised counselling for families from low-income households, children in care, and children in need.
All our therapists are qualified and registered with The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) or any reputable professional body.
Our therapists are DBS checked and have experience helping families, couples, and individuals across various issues. They are also required to adhere to our safeguarding policy.
