According to our Spring Snapshots survey while many under 25 year olds in North Dorset and Yeovil were excited to go out and about and meet friends, a quarter of those asked expressed great anxiety about the return to ‘normal life’.

The impact of the last year won’t be fully seen for some time but we are already seeing an increase in demand for mental health and wellbeing support and as always we are doing everything we can to provide the best support we can in the way that best suits each young person.

During the pandemic we delivered nearly 1000 hours of support to young people who were struggling with mental health issues and kept in contact with another 60 to provide support that fell outside that of school or other agencies.
