Mental wellbeing support for children and young people

Emotional, mental health and wellbeing support for children and young people

There is a range of emotional, mental health and wellbeing services available in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland. Some of these require a  referral from a professional, but many of them do not. There is plenty of support which can be accessed directly by children, young people and their families.

Finding the right help to meet your needs at the right time

Click here  to read our emotional, mental health and wellbeing service directory for children, young people and their families in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.

This directory provides information on a range of general and specialist NHS mental health services for young people, including online and telephone support, together with top tips for children and families and details of youth groups as well as support available from local councils.

All of the services in this directory can be contacted directly by children and young people – they do not need a referral from a professional.

Produced by Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland Clinical Commissioning Groups (LLR CCGs), the guide is intended to encourage and support young people to get the help they need.

We want to make it as easy as possible for young people and their families to know about the wide range of support that is available, including online counselling, live chat and messaging services, support with specific issues such as self-harm and substance misuse.

Other places to find advice

Health for Kids and Health for Teens give a range of information and advice around mental and physical health, including details of local services and organisations for support.
