This service is available to anyone, including young people 24 hours per day, every day of the year.
If parents are concerned about a crisis mental health situation, they can take their child to A & E, or can speak to their local GP for advice in the first instance.
Some young people who are distressed are awaiting an appointment from CAMHS. If a young person's mental health worsens whilst on the CAMHS waiting list parents should telephone their local CAMHS and speak to them about this.
Additional mental health information advice and support will be available on the Familyworks website, on Facebook and Instagram on the 23rd of December and before the New Year as well.
It is hard to guess what January holds for us all, but we look forward to a future where hopes are realised for our young people and for our wider society.
