Children & Young People’s Services

We offer specialist emotional wellbeing and mental health service for all children and young people who are registered with a GP in Gloucestershire or Herefordshire. We see children and young people up to 18 years of age when they find it hard to cope with their feelings.

Mental health services for children and young people

Everyone feels stressed, anxious, down or angry from time to time but sometimes these feelings can be overwhelming and just won’t go away. Usually children and young people referred to us will be experiencing emotional wellbeing problems that significantly affect their ability to cope with normal stresses and demands of life.

We have services in Gloucestershire and Herefordshire for children and young people who are experiencing mental health issues. We also work in partnership with families and professionals supporting young people with mental health needs. You can find out all about the services we provide by visiting our dedicated website for children and young people here.
