Support for parents: children’s use of social media at night
How can we better support the wellbeing of our children and families when it comes to using devices at night-time?
Could you volunteer for Shout?
Shout Volunteers are at the heart of everything we do. They're often the first person our texters have ever spoken to about how they are feeling.
As a Volunteer, you work to take someone in distress to a calmer place. In return, you receive 25 hours of free, in-depth mental health communication training and ongoing dedicated coaching to help others while developing skills for life.
We've opened applications for UK volunteers who can start training in early 2022.
