History of Visyon
In 1994 following the experiences of the families of three young people, who committed suicide in Congleton. It was the feeling of hopelessness and despair felt by the parents of one of the young people after she died that led them to contact others who had an interest in young people’s mental health. The desperate actions taken by the young people could have been avoided if focused and specialist support for young people had been more readily available. A group of local people got together, comprising and consulting with many professionals who all agreed that a readily accessible support service was needed for young people. After several meetings a core of people emerged who formed the first management committee and Visyon was born.
