How our school counselling service can help

Mental health issues are a growing concern; research shows that one in six children aged 5-16 has a probable mental disorder.  That is an average of five in every classroom.  Our Connect-Ed school counselling and therapy services support the mental health and emotional wellbeing of thousands of children each year.
