The Lucy Project offers self-referral psychological interventions to support young people under 18 who are experiencing difficulties with low mood or anxiety in relation to their physical health while under the care of Sheffield Children’s.

This service helps young people with mild to moderate psychological difficulties which are related to their physical health condition– such as anxiety, low mood or difficulties accessing health procedures.

Let us introduce you to two of the people you might meet. Emily and Becky have both been a part of Sheffield Children’s Community Children Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) for almost seven years. They are Senior Children’s Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner who have been involved with The Lucy Project for the last 12 months.

Their role is to support young people struggling with mental health difficulties. Depending on their physical health presentations they can offer up to eight sessions of low intensity cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT).

There is something else you need to know about Emily and Becky – they’re both dog lovers! Outside of The Lucy Project they like nothing better than spending time with their furry friends and both recognise their dog’s importance for maintaining good mental health.


Contacting The Lucy Project

The Lucy Project is for self-referrals so children, young people or their parents can request support by filling in the online form.

Please note that the Lucy Project is only designed to support young people with mild to moderate psychological difficulties so cannot work with more severe presentations.
