The Medway Young Persons' Wellbeing Service provides emotional wellbeing and mental health advice and support for young people and their families.
The Medway Young Persons' Wellbeing Service offers advice and support for:
• low mood
• difficult to manage behaviours as well as support for neurodevelopmental difficulties such as ADHD or ASD.
The way in which support is offered differs from young person to young person depending on the type and severity of concern. For some young people their emotional well-being may be having a significant impact on their day to day life and in these cases the YPWS may offer a short period of face to face support either in 1:1 sessions or in a group. All NELFT’s direct support options aim for young people to meet their own goals. These include: online self–help; sign-posting to other organisations; crisis support; specialist assessments; and face to face therapy either individually or in groups
Young people who have been discharged can refer themselves back into the service at any time.
Eligibility/referral criteria: NELFT offer an open and easy to access service. Anyone can refer – including children and young people themselves. Young people are encouraged to get in touch with the service and/or to access some of the self-help resources on offer by signing up to MindFresh here: https://mindfresh.nelft.nhs.uk/.
