TAPA works with young people between the ages of 14-25 within the Brighton & Hove area who have difficulties with their mental health & emotional wellbeing. We work in the community, mostly from the Young Person’s Centre (YPC) in Ship Street. We are really flexible so can meet up with young people wherever they feel most comfortable i.e. at home, school, college, café, beach…
We work with young people who have found it hard to reach mainstream mental health services, who might have difficulty remembering or getting to appointments, & would find it easier to work with a more relaxed and informal team. We are all qualified mental health practitioners and 2 of us have specific skills and interest in LGBTQU; BME & Young Men. We are always happy to talk to you if you are unsure if we are the right service for you so feel free to come along to our Drop-In on a Tuesday afternoon at YAC or give us a text/call/email.
