Ferryhealth is a confidential support centre for all young people at Ferryhill Business and Enterprise College. It is a place where you can come and access information, advice or support with any health or social problem.
You can come in for anything from healthy eating, smoking, drugs and alcohol, pregnancy, contraception, family issues, friends, STIs, peer pressure, stress and exams, bulling and lots of other things. Some students just come in for a chat about things in general as we welcome you with a warm and safe environment.
Ferryhealth is the stepping stone for young people to access services and both youth workers can signpost young people to other external services.
This online room is for all matters concerning health and wellbeing at FBEC
