Support offered to young people in Liverpool affected by Manchester attack

COUNSELLING is being offered to young people across Liverpool affected by the terror attack in Manchester earlier this week. Schools across the City are able to access and guidance via the Young Person's Advisory Service (YPAS) and CAMHS (Children and Adolescents Mental Health Service). If anyone needs support they should approach a member of school staff or they can approach the advisory service YPAS directly for support. CAMHS have mental health link workers connected to each of the City's secondary schools while YPAS has community hubs across the City, where young people can pop in for a chat or to arrange counselling.

Councillor Barry Kushner, Cabinet member for children's services, said:- "Our heart goes out to those whose lives have been changed forever as a result of what happened in Manchester on Monday night. We know that there are young people in the City were at the concert, or know people who were there and those who were tragically killed or injured. At this time, it is really important for young people and families in our City to know that counselling support is available for them."

Assistant Mayor and Cabinet member for education, Councillor Nick Small, added:- "We know that the shock of an event like this can take time to emerge, and it is important that people in our City know that this support will be there when they need it, whether it is now, in the next few weeks or even the next few months."

Monique Collier, Chief Executive of YPAS, said:- "We have already been providing support and therapeutic services to students in Liverpool and we believe that over the coming weeks there will be increased demand for services as the enormity of what has happened sinks in. It is important that people remember that support is available and they should not be embarrassed about asking for support."

More information about CAMHS can be found online and also on the YPAS website.
