What Young People Say about 42nd Street

“When I first arrived I felt like the support had already started as every member of staff I spoke to was kind and caring. From the beginning support induction with [the practitioner at assessment] where she took into account my feelings and what I needed help with to the start of my 121 support with [the practitioner] who has helped me find coping mechanisms I never knew I had.”

“Very helpful session, each type of therapy was described before I made my decision.”
