For Young People
We all need some emotional support at times and that is why we are here; to listen, guide and help you to feel happier and able to cope with life’s challenges.
"Our vision is one in which children can enjoy life growing up in their community.
Bromley Y promotes the emotional wellbeing and mental health of children, young people and families by enabling change, fostering resilience and helping them build healthy relationships. Our service aims to listen, respect, support and offer effective interventions to those in need, at the right time and in the right place.
We commit to working together with schools and other key providers to keep children and their family's needs at the heart of what we do."
Gill Allen, Director
Over the last year Dami Ogunnaike has been our youth ambassador at Bromley Y and the purpose of her role was to act as the advocate for the voice of young people at Bromley Y.
During the year she had the opportunity to meet each team and learn all about how we work with young people, parents, and staff in schools and in the community. She was involved in planning activities, attending outreach events in the community and working with Wellbeing Ambassadors in schools, to gather their feedback. Dami also had important input into surveys to gather the experiences of our young users, as well as their thoughts about our website. Her activities have provided us with an insight into how our services meet the needs of young people and what we can do to improve.
We thank Dami for her invaluable input and her work to spread the word about Bromley Y into different groups and communities; highlighting that mental health is everyone’s business and mental health services should be made easily accessible to everyone.
We are now recruiting a new Youth Ambassador and look forward to them joining us shortly.
