Targeted support and mentoring
Bright Paths strive to enhance children’s mental health, behaviour and emotional wellbeing.
Our purpose is to enable children and young people to access the support they need when they need it, enabling them to build lifelong coping skills and thrive.
Mental health problems affect 1 in 6 children in the UK
It is estimated that 60-70% of children and young people suffering from a mental health difficulty have not accessed appropriate intervention at a young enough age.

Targeted social, emotional and mental health support for young people in the UK
Bright Paths provide a range of interventions to support the mental health and emotional wellbeing of children and young people. By working closely with parents, carers and schools, our holistic approach nurtures lasting behavioural changes.
We can help in many situations, including supporting those with emerging mental health concerns, low self-esteem or presenting with challenging behaviour.
Being a child-centred organisation, our team pride ourselves on building bespoke intervention plans to suit individual circumstances and ability.
As a result of our mentorship and support, the young people we work with typically experience a steady increase in:
Bright Paths support children, young people and families

Meet Sam, a 15-year-old student from Bedford. She has never met her birth father, and her mother is desperate to find a way to support her daughter’s mental health and emotional wellbeing but doesn’t know where to start.
We left Sam’s story (above) at a crossroads. She could spiral down, developing unhealthy coping mechanisms such as taking drugs, drinking excessive amounts of alcohol and mixing with the wrong crowd. As a result of her lowered resilience and lack of support, Sam may develop a mental illness such as depression. Sadly, 1 in 3 adult mental health conditions relate directly to adverse childhood experiences.
She could benefit from one to one targeted intervention. She could realise that, in fact, she is a gifted artist and, with appropriate support and encouragement, can contribute to class activities. She could even learn to trust others and express her feelings in a safe environment, rebuilding her damaged self-esteem.
It is because of children and young people like Sam that Bright Paths exist.
Bright Paths are a dedicated children’s mental health service working with children, young people and their families to help nurture their social, emotional and mental health needs.
We also work with children who present with challenging behaviour and specialise in supporting those with ADHD or ASD struggling in mainstream schools.
