Support for Mental Health

Students have a long summer holiday this year. We hope everyone will have a relaxing time but we would also like to make you aware of the following sources of support should you need them.

Kooth.com is an online service for young people which has many self-help resources and counselling is available. This is an anonymous service but can signpost users to other services which may be suitable for their needs.

Shout is a text-based service that offers 24/7 support. Their website is also a very useful resource that offers self-help strategies. Their “Little Book of Coping Skills”  is particularly helpful and based on feedback from their users about what worked for them.

Primary Mental Health is a service which you can refer to if you have concerns that your child may need more focussed, face to face support: https://www.northumbria.nhs.uk/our-services/childrens-services/primary-mental-health-work/#46183ba1

CYPS is the Children & Young People’s Service and you can make a referral directly to them if you have serious concerns about your child’s mental health.

If your child expresses suicidal thoughts, the Crisis Team is available 24/7.

Call: 0303 1231146

The Samaritans continues to be a very valuable service for those people suffering from suicidal thoughts and can be contacted 24/7:

If you have urgent concerns about your child, please either dial 999 or take them to NSECH (Cramlington Hospital) for immediate assistance. This service should only be used in an emergency.

We hope you have an enjoyable and safe summer break.
