Children and Young People Mental Health Service (CYPS)

  • Our Children and Young Peoples Service (CYPS) works with young people who are experiencing significant, severe and complex difficulties with their mental health. 

    These difficulties range from feeling low a lot of the time and worrying about lots of things to finding and fitting in with friends, hearing voices, having significant difficulties around eating, self-harming and suicidal thoughts. 

    While we all have difficulties from time to time, our mental health support service is here to support those young people whose difficulties are very distressing and/or seriously interfering with daily life.

    If you or your child are having a tough time, it’s important that you seek help.
