If you are under 25 and registered with a GP in Birmingham, you can receive support from Pause. We also provide support for parents and carers who are concerned about their child or young person’s wellbeing.
If you are under 14 we require a parent/carer to complete the registration with you and support you to come to a session, however, once you are here you can have space to speak on your own without your parent or carer.
We do not accept registrations completed by professionals. If you think our service may be suitable for young people you work with, please send them the link to this page and they can make the decision to register or not.
What if I struggle with forms/don't have access to the internet?
You can also register by leaving a message on our registration line: 020 784 14470 (Please note local call charges apply), one of the team will call you back and get you signed up for support.
We are led by you – the young person - we don’t book you in for regular sessions. It’s your choice when you contact us for support and how often – we are here when you want to talk.
How old do you need to be to get support from Pause without a parent/carer?
You can access Pause without a parent or carer if you are 14 years old or over. This means you can come to drop in or request a phone or video call without an adult if you want to. However, we ask you to provide an emergency contact who we will contact if we are worried you are at risk of harm.
