Emotional health and wellbeing

Poor mental health, low self-esteem and bullying can negatively impact on young people’s health and educational attainment.

A negative body image, poor diet, substance misuse and relationship difficulties are major risk factors for ill-health. Our service wants every child and young person to have access to early help in supporting their emotional wellbeing and mental health needs. Parents and young people can access our service through Family Clinics, Young People’s Confidential Health Drop In Services and directly by contacting 0114 3053224. In an emergency please contact 111, your GP, or access your local accident and emergency department or Walk In Centre

Sleep

Children and young people who have difficulties with sleep become sleep deprived. Sleep deprivation has wide implications for the child’s emotions, behaviour, physical health and learning.

Our service has teamed up with The Children’s Sleep Charity www.thechildrenssleepchairty.org.uk to support families and young people to get a good night’s sleep.

We work in partnership with the local Multi Agency Support teams to offer parent workshops and clinics across the city, as well as offering advice during routine home visits.

To access your local sleep workshop or clinic contact your health visitor or school nurse…… contact signposting.

Alternatively help can be accessed through the early help gateway. Contact your local Multi Agency Support Team
