Working towards a brighter tomorrow… today.
Emotional wellbeing support when it’s needed most.
No child should have to face mental distress alone, and every young person deserves the time and space to explore their thoughts and feelings safely.
Life can present challenges that young people are ill-equipped to deal with. With little to no coping strategies in place, individuals can become withdrawn, may suffer from decreased self-esteem and present aggressive or anti-social behaviour.
Half of all lifetime mental health problems emerge by the age of fourteen and 75% by twenty-four. Early intervention and the therapeutic support that Bright Paths provide can offer children the best possible chance of building resilience before they become overwhelmed, reach crisis point, and potentially require clinical interventions.
Bright Paths believe that if young people have access to emotional and wellbeing support, they have a greater chance of building effective coping strategies and are more likely to thrive and back from life challenges.

Dedicated to supporting the mental health and emotional wellbeing of young people
Bright Paths official mission statement is in the next section. However, if you’d like a snapshot summary, read on. Bright paths aim to:
We facilitate positive and fulfilling lives in young people by providing targeted support and interventions that help transform social, emotional and behavioural difficulties.
Our young service users are at the very centre of the service we provide – involving them in the entire process, from initial assessments to final feedback. We promote wellness and actively strive to reduce the stigma associated with mental health.
“It’s okay not to be okay.”
Though our service is available to all, Bright Paths prioritise referrals from students who are not eligible for other means of support. Particularly if they are from backgrounds in which they are likely to experience ill mental health disproportionally.
A holistic and ethical mental health service
All of the work we undertake has the following core values at its heart:
Compassion – By bringing empathy and kindness into all we do, we can better understand the needs of the children and young people we work with.
Integrity – Solid ethical values of honesty, transparency and authenticity underpin our working practice.
Creativity – We employ an open-minded approach and are flexible in our thinking and behaviour. Furthermore, we empower others to do the same.
Excellence – Our staff are committed to excellence in service delivery as well as personal development and learning.
