Dundee’s youth mental health charity, Feeling Strong, has opened its new community hub in Stobswell.

It aims to deliver a number of services for the young people of the city and the hub is also designed to be a one-stop-shop for those who have mental health challenges.

Among the services available to youngsters are an area to chill out and escape the pressures of day-to-day life, plus the chance to learn about services for more help and referrals to other organisations.

There are also opportunities, depending on the young person’s specific needs, such as counselling, support with employability plus education and access to other mental health activities available in Dundee.

The hub’s facilities and events assistant, Nicole Don, said: “It is a safe space for young people to come to chill out, play some games and meet new people.

“It’s important to create a space that feels safe where vulnerable young people can access the support they need.”
