At No5, we are experiencing an ongoing rise in the number of young people seeking help and support with their mental health. This rise in demand has put more pressure on our services, however we have continued to work hard to meet the needs of the young people in Reading.
In March alone 198 young people were seen by No5 and a total of 507 counselling sessions were delivered to young people. This is an increase from the number of young people we met in February and we need to keep meeting young people when they ask for help.
