Young People's Mental Health

Support and information

 

If you have an urgent emotional or mental health issue please talk to a teacher or contact your GP or go to A&E. During the Covid-19 restrictions the pastoral support teams at Sidmouth primary schools and Sidmouth College are continuing to support young people with mental health issues. Parents, children and students who feel they need support or advice can contact either Tracey Tipton on 07540 668 525 (primary age) or Carole Clark 07495 540 415 (college age - see resources at www.sidmouthcollege.devon.sch.uk/coronavirus-covid-19.html) 

Young Devon (www.youngdevon.org  08082 810155) has produced a good wellbeing toolkit with tips, tricks and techniques for maintaining positive mental health during lockdown and beyond. It has advice for parents if children feel anxious about coronavirus. A PDF copy can be downloaded HERE.

Sid Valley Wellbeing and Health Action Team (WHAT) 

The group has been set up with the mission to improve young people’s mental health through improved local access to early help services. The aim is to work together across organisations in the Sid Valley to increase what provision is on offer to improve young people’s wellbeing and reduce the stigma of mental health issues. There have been several WHAT meetings to identify what needs to be done and what local resources there already are. WHAT is being coordinated through Sid Valley Help.

Our appeal for the Headlight project raised over £10,000 but due to Covid-19 the planned start in April 2020 has had to be delayed. For more information contact Di Fuller through Sid Valley Help.

Donations can be made HERE
