TeenTalk Support Information
Please see some information about TeenTalk, our Early Help and Support Service for young people aged 10-25 in Wiltshire.
Our service is free and offers counselling either face to face or via telephone/teams.
Referrals can be made either by professionals, parents and young people themselves.
All referrals are made via our website, a counsellor will then make contact to ensure that our service meets the needs of the young person and to explain how our service works.
