Online Drop-in Support
Who could this be good for?
Young people who either…
- Would like to speak with someone without setting up an appointment
- Are waiting for one of our other services
- Have something coming up they’d like to talk about
What is it?
Each week on a Wednesday afternoon (4pm-6pm) you can access our online drop-in service. Here you can speak one to one with one of our practitioners for a short session (usually lasting around 30mins). It’s based in our webchat platform so the conversation will be text-based and you can access this from any device.
It’s open any young person, whether you’ve already referred yourself to one of our services or accessing a group, or whether you’d like to talk to someone without signing up for ongoing support.
What can I talk about?
You can choose what to talk about in these sessions, whether that might be a specific problem that’s on your mind, something in the future that’s worrying you or that you’re having a difficult time right now; you could even talk about what 42nd Street can offer you if you would like to.
How do I access this?
To access our drop in, head over to our webchat platform.
From 2pm each Wednesday they’ll be a purple box that says “drop-in” – just click that and fill in our form and you’ll get a message as soon as a practitioner is free between 4pm-6pm
Once you’re signed up you can speak with our welcome team too, in case there’s any difficulties accessing the drop-in
