Today is World Mental Health Day and, coincidentally, World Homelessness Day. With this in mind, we thought there was no better time to speak to our Senior Psychotherapist, Stephen Geale, who works as part of London’s Health & Wellbeing team, about what it’s like to work for Centrepoint and why mental health services are such an important part of what we offer.
Former Centrepoint resident Dale Taylor-Gentles tells us why Christmas can often feel like the loneliest time of year for young people without a stable family structure, and how the idea of a 'Found Family' meant he could look forward to the holidays again.
LGBT young people make up 24% of the youth homeless population. February marks LGBT Awareness Month, and so we're asking the all-important question: how can we ensure we create safe spaces for members of the LGBTQ+ community without a place to stay?
For Young Carers Awareness day, here's what it's like to be a young carer for someone you love - and what we can do to help.
Centrepoint has implemented a ‘Psychologically Informed Environment’ (PIE) across the organisation. Here, Consultant Clinical and Forensic Psychologist Dr Helen Miles, explains what this will mean for the charity and our homeless young people.
