Children, young people, and families can access a range of help and support with mental health and wellbeing issues through a local NHS website

Developed by Herefordshire and Worcestershire Health and Care NHS Trust, the site provides self-help materials including videos and podcasts, links to advice and information, and details of local services available across both counties for young people struggling with their mental health

There is also a dedicated section for parents worried about their child, and a range of downloadable resources which map out the support available.

The site was launched a year ago and has received 70,000 views to date.

Gary Morgan, Head of Marketing and Communications at Herefordshire and Worcestershire Health and Care NHS Trust said: “We know from speaking to children, young people and parents that it can be hard sometimes to navigate to the right support, so we wanted this site to pull local options together in one place. The site provides lots of helpful information, including self-help materials and advice on a range of specialist issues, for example eating disorders and bullying.

“We have seen a rise in children coming forward with mental health issues over the last couple of years, and it’s really important that people access help and information as early as possible, so would urge anyone with worries about themselves or someone else to have a look at the support available locally.”
