Welcome To Off The Record
Supporting young people’s mental health to fulfil their potential for a brighter future
OTR is here to provide emotional wellbeing and mental health support for young people aged 11-25 in South East Hampshire by offering a choice of counselling options so you can pick the support you feel will be most effective for your situation. Talking to someone in a counselling environment outside school, or home helps build your emotional resilience as you explore changes in your life or respond to traumatic events.
We understand that it might be nerve-wracking to make that first step but saying things out loud for the first time, in a safe space, can be life-changing!
We run 1-2-1 counselling in person at our Leigh Park centre and other locations in the community, or you can access your sessions from home via Zoom or phone. We also run in-person groupwork courses to help you understand and manage your emotions.
While on the waiting list you will receive weekly check-in calls from our amazing team of volunteer support workers.
We aim to make OTR easy to access, and we promise you will feel listened to, valued, included, safe, and seen as the individual that you are. Click on the self-refer button at any point to request support or the get in touch buttons to ask us anything!
