Door 43 wellbeing service

Door 43 offers support to 13-25 year olds on a range of emotional wellbeing issues. Our service provides information, advice and guidance to young people experiencing issues such as low mood, stress and anxiety, loneliness, difficulty accessing education or employment and low confidence. We aim to intervene at an early stage to stop emotional and wellbeing issues in their tracks before they develop into more serious mental health issues.

As much of our work is usually carried out face to face, as a result of coronavirus, we’ve adapted our services so young people can still be supported through this challenging time. Our wellbeing team is also providing daily support and guidance on different topics via Instagram such as staying active while at home, motivation, eating well and managing uncertainty along with the usual fun stuff too!

Sheffield young people’s wellbeing support line:

Young people aged 12-18 living in Sheffield can now access support with issues such as low mood and anxious thoughts by calling 0808 275 8892 Monday to Saturday 9am-9pm.

The helpline is run by wellbeing practitioners who are part of the Door 43 wellbeing service at Sheffield Futures.

The team can speak to young people who might be struggling with challenges such as exam stress, relationship issues, bullying or feelings of loneliness and isolation.

The service can also signpost young people to additional services if they require more long-term support.

The helpline is for young people who are not already accessing support for their mental health through other services, and it cannot support young people in crisis.

The service is in partnership with NHS Sheffield Clinical Commissioning Group and Sheffield Children’s Hospital.
