Choose Well for Mental Health
South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust have created a guide to help children and young people ‘choose well for mental health’. Aimed at people in Barnsley, Calderdale, Kirklees and Wakefield, the guide will:
- Support people in looking after their mental health and wellbeing
- Inform people about how to access the right support when they need it
- Help people know what to do if they, or someone they know, experience a mental health crisis or emergency.
Parents, carers, families and friends can also use the ‘choose well for mental health’ guide to look out for children and young people close to them and help them get the right support and advice.
The guide has been co-created with children and young people with lived experience, and specialist healthcare teams who work with them, carers and their families.
