Youthspace is a new project launched by The Archers actress and senior research psychologist Charlotte Connor. This is an online space set up to catch mental health problems early in young people who experience symptoms of issues such as anxiety, stress and depression. The project is a partnership between NHS and Fairbridge, and its development was heavily influenced by young people to create a relevant and useful service for 12- 25 years olds.

Youthspace contains up-to-date information and advice for young people about recilience, wellbeing and mental health problems. Young people can register on the site, personalise their own pages and find specialised information in various sections such as home life, health life, work life and social life. The page also has a blog with news from around the world and interesting opinion pieces.
