Emotional Wellbeing and Mental Health

We know that the uncertainty and significant changes taking place currently will have an impact on the emotional wellbeing and mental health of many children and young people in the borough.

It is critical that all children, young people and their families are aware of the available support and are able to access this over the coming weeks and months.

There is a wide range of support available that can be accessed online, by phone and by text. In addition to this, our usual face-to-face services are adapting their approaches, so as to be able to continue to provide support remotely.

Please follow this link for a leaflet that sets out available support for children and young people ‘Knowing your mental health’
