We are a multi-borough service, working with children, young people (ages 0-25 years old) and their families/carers to promote good mental health and wellbeing.
In Barnet and Hillingdon, we have been commissioned by the local authorities and Clinical Commissioning Groups to deliver mental health and wellbeing webinars, 1-2-1, and group sessions online using Zoom by a qualified therapist and a moderator.
In Brent, we are also delivering an awareness-raising and anti-stigma social movement that aims to empower young people by empowering them and their families to join in the discussion to transform child and adolescent mental health services.
We aim to tackle the causes of poor mental health and get a better understanding of various mental health problems, and explore different coping mechanisms. Whilst the pandemic is ongoing we are adhering to Government advice and face-to-face meetings have been transferred to digital and telephone sessions.
