Key information for young people

It can be hard to talk with other people about things that are worrying you.
But if the way that you are feeling is having a negative impact on your life the most important thing is not to hide it or bottle it up but to talk to someone. That’s why 42nd Street is here.

Here are some things about 42nd Street that might help you decide if we are the right service for you:
