Mental health planning in North Tyneside
Earlier in the summer the North East Asset Mapping Conference was held to raise awareness and promote the joint working that has been taking place across the borough. At the core of this work is the Mental Health and Emotional Wellbeing Strategy. The aim of the strategy is to:
- Develop resilient children, young people and families.
- Ensure easy access for children, young people and families to get the right mental health support at an early stage from universal services.
- Improve access to specialist mental health services for those children and young people who are at high risk of poor mental health.
To help raise awareness of this work and the conference a booklet has come together as a result of an asset mapping exercise in North Tyneside. The aim was to bring together the groups, organisations, services and offers to children, young people, and their families whose remit was mental health and wellbeing.
