Although it can be great to have a break from the routine of the school term, the long summer break can also be a time of anxiety and increased stress for families and young people.
If you need any support for a young person’s mental health or wellbeing, the links below provides useful guidance.
If you have a situation where an urgent response is necessary (if a young person is at immediate risk of taking their own life or is showing severe psychotic symptoms) then please telephone the Specialist CAMHS service.
