Welcome

Welcome to Youth Emotional Support Service (YESS)

Welcome to the new and fabulous YESS website.

We at YESS are really passionate about helping children and young people who are experiencing emotional and mental distress.

So let me tell you a bit about us……

YESS are a local charity based in Uttoxeter but operate in East Staffordshire and Cannock. YESS has been operating for 6 years and during this time we have worked tirelessly to help children and young people receive mental health support and help reduce the stigma attached to mental health.

Our fabulous group of counsellors, wellbeing practitioners and youth participation workers provide emotional support and opportunities for children and young people aged 5 -19 years who may be experiencing some emotional distress or wish to participate in transforming the current mental health arena within South Staffordshire.

In order to make our organisation viable and strong we rely on the good nature of our volunteer trustees who govern our organisation.  We have lots of opportunities to get involved and help us, from fund raising to participation.

We would really like it if you had a good look around our website as there is loads of information on here.
