We are Barnardo’s Healthy Minds Wiltshire

About our service


We are Barnardo’s Healthy Minds Wiltshire, run by Barnardo’s and funded by Wiltshire Council.

This website has lots of information, practical tips and advice about supporting children and young people’s emotional wellbeing.

We are here to help young people aged 5-18 who are experiencing a range of early mental health difficulties through group work, activities in the community and counselling sessions for those young people who need more intensive support.  We are also an all year round service and so our support does not stop in school holidays.

We welcome referrals from young people, parents, carers and professionals.  If you want to talk to one of our team about the help we can offer please complete our contact form here and we will get back to you.

Webchat is now available every Monday and Thursday’s between 4.30pm and 5.30pm if you would like advice and information from one of the team.

Supporting young people

The support that we provide comes in many different forms, from group work, positive activities within the community to one-to-one counselling sessions. There is also lots of information about self-help which you can use to support your own emotional wellbeing. Please get in touch if you have any questions or want more support.
