We’re sharing urgent concerns about conversations happening online on TikTok, about ‘Megan is Missing’, a movie being discussed on social media.
Snow-Camp have just launched a free virtual mental health service for young people!
Through our new campaign Stop.Breathe.Think young people can access free 1-1 counselling sessions via
Youth workers, social workers, teachers and parents can also refer a young person via the same link.
We have also launched a text support service where young people can text BREATHE to 85258, to speak to one of our trained volunteers first. All volunteers are supported by experienced clinical supervisors.
What makes our support different?
* Our text service is available 24/7.
* Unlike many other free counselling services, there are no wait times and the young person/person referring someone is contacted within 24 hours.
* We have a team of 30 counsellors working with us who specialise in different issues. So, a young person can get the right targeted and specialised support from the start.
We want as many young people as possible to access the mental health support they need during these difficult times.
Thank you so much for your support and hopefully together we provide more young people with the vital support they need right now. Don't forget to tag Snow-Camp Charity when you post on your social so we can re share too.
MESSAGE FROM HINCKLEY & BOSWORTH BOROUGH COUNCIL
There are emerging issues regarding the use of Nitrous Oxide and Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council and the Police are finding significant amounts of canisters which are disposed of in parks, in industrial estates and on streets etc
Inhaling nitrous oxide can result in a lack of oxygen to the brain. This can result in a person falling unconscious and even dying through suffocation or heart problems. This risk is likely to be greater if the gas is consumed in an enclosed space or if a lot is used at the same time.
Regular or heavy use of nitrous oxide has been linked to a deficiency in vitamin B12. This can lead to nerve damage which causes pain and tingling in the toes and fingers. Studies have also linked heavy use of the gas to some forms of anaemia, which affects your red blood cells and leads to tiredness and weakness.
Using nitrous oxide whilst drinking can cause ill effects and accidents as both these drugs are depressants
Ever since the Psychoactive Substances Act came into effect on 26 May 2016 it has been illegal to supply or import nitrous oxide for human consumption.
