About this cause
Visyon charity is a mental health charity created 25 years ago by volunteer members of the community in response to three suicides in the Congleton area. We provide a safe and comfortable environment for children and young people to talk about how they are feeling and receive support if they are feeling anxious, stressed or angry. Visyon provides a range of services for children and young people including counselling, mentoring, advocacy and therapeutic and creative groups. Visyon also hosts family support sessions and provides support and training to local schools.
How this cause brings people in the community together
Our open access sessions offer young people and their parents/carers a 30-minute session where they are able to talk with one of the Visyon staff about how they are feeling and to discuss what support they need.
