Emotional wellbeing and mental health services

Here you can find out about some of the Emotional Wellbeing and Mental Health Services (EWMHS) available to support young people, their families and schools in the area.

Bridging the Gap!

It is a time when young people are experiencing a range of life changes; moving towards greater independence and making a range of important life choices including education, career, housing, relationships and finances. We know that during this period in a young person’s life existing mental health difficulties may worsen or become exacerbated by the variety of stresses and strains that adolescence and adulthood may bring. Please click on the survey below so we are able to capture the ways we can improve mental health access, treatment and health outcomes for older teenagers & young adults.


An online counselling and emotional wellbeing support service providing young people aged 11-25 with free, safe and anonymous online support. The service is run by a professional team of qualified counsellors, and requires no referrals and has no waiting times. Kooth provides counselling, advice, a peer support forum and has many articles on a range of emotional wellbeing issues.

Schools Toolkit

Schools play a vital role in supporting the emotional wellbeing and mental health of their pupils. We have collated resources and local information to support early identification of mental health issues, and to support the mental wellbeing of the whole school community.

Starting in late spring 2019 schools in the Queens Park and Paddington areas of Westminster will be able to receive support from the new MIND Schools Mental Health Support Teams. This new service will be gradually phased in eventually supporting 40 schools across the area.  


Training is key to raising awareness  about mental health and to equip our communities with the knowledge and skills they need to support and identify those who may be struggling with their mental health.
