Choices offers support to children, young people up to the age of 17 and families in Haringey who are worried about their emotional wellbeing.

​Choices can meet you at various venues across the borough including Wood Green, Tottenham, Hornsey, Harringay and Finsbury Park.

MIND in Haringey

Are you a Young Carer or recently left care?

The Emotional Support Project (ESP) considers the hardship of having to care for a parent or guardian. The ESP can also help care leavers take the steps from being a teenager, to becoming a self-sufficient adult.  We can help you to overcome issues with anger, build your confidence and improve your self-esteem.

The Coping with Life Skills programme is fully prepared to support you; the program will give you the tools to develop personally through a new innovative cognitive behavioural model.
