About The ME Project

The ME Project exists to support young people and adults by promoting positive mental health, encouraging them to share their concerns so that we can provide them with the right tools to manage their emotions.

What is the ME project?

ME – stands for Managing Emotions…. because that’s what we aim to help people to do.

The ME Project primarily is a CiC – a Community Interest Company. This means that we sometimes receive funding to provide some of our services for free. We rely on fundraising too, and events that we attend in the community help us to raise awareness and funds to provide support to those who need it.

We are a talking & support service for people who are experiencing mental health issues or are struggling to find clarity in their emotional wellbeing.

We support people who are experiencing:

  • Anxiety
  • Social Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Agoraphobia
  • Stress
  • Relationship Problems
  • Family issues
  • OCD
  • Suicidal thoughts
  • Self harm

And many more…

All of our support packages are planned and agreed during a free initial assessment so that everyone feels totally in control.

70% of young people who experience mental health problems are not receiving appropriate interventions at a sufficiently early age.

Who is the mE project aimed at?

The Project offers support to people  who are experiencing mental health issues. Additionally, The ME Project provides services for parents/carers, schools and professionals.

Adults – Creating a bespoke package of support so that people can be in control of their growth and recovery. A range of services means that  people benefit from flexibility and thinking outside the box!

Young people – Each individual is assessed and matched to a service according to their needs. Typically the young person will be aware of their declining mental health and is struggling to cope.

Parents / Carers – Often it is hard to know where to go, what to say and how to really help young people who have these worries.

Schools – Adolescence is an emotionally fraught time, attendance and focus at school are easily impacted. We can offer support in schools.

Professionals – The ME Project is managed and delivered by skilled and qualified staff. As a provider we ensure that the service we deliver is high quality and consistently improving.
