Are you feeling worried, angry or upset? Struggling to cope? Stressed about school or exams? Feeling bad about yourself? Experiencing bullying or relationship worries? Or are you just feeling a bit low and not enjoying things?

Lots of young people feel this way. 

We can help.

This page provides everything you need to know about the service.  

What is #Thrive?

#Thrive is for children and young people aged up to 19 years.

You must live, or be registered with a GP practice (doctor), in Heywood, Middleton or Rochdale.

We can also provide advice and support to parents, carers and anyone that works with a child or young person.

Types of support

We have lots of different types of support to help you. We can also offer advice to improve your general lifestyle, including exercise, diet and many other things.

We can provide this support in lots of different ways. We will always talk to you about what support will best meet your needs.

We can offer more traditional types of support, such as one-to-one or group counselling sessions, or online courses. We can also signpost and help you access other types of support, such as sport, drama, music or art.  

If we aren’t able to offer the right support, we can decide together what other options are available.

It is important to have a good support network around you, so we will always try to involve those who love and care for you (or who work with you) in any support we provide. This does not necessarily need to be your parents or siblings - it can be anyone who you trust, who provides support and care to you.
