Are you a young person who is worried that there’s something wrong with you? Have you already been referred to or seen someone from a mental health service? Or an early intervention in psychosis service? Want some advice or answers? Then this website is for you. It has been produced with and for young people.

Why bother with this website?

Young people have mental health problems too! Did you know that 1 out of every 10 teenagers will have some sort of early mental health problem and as many as 2-3 people out of 100 will develop psychosis? Imagine thats as many as 3 or 4 people in a college class having one problem or another. This is normal!

This website doesn’t make any assumptions about your experiences, where they’ve come from or what’s caused them. Everyone’s experiences are different. This website aims to tell you more about some common mental health problems and about mental health services, what they can offer, how they might help and how you might benefit.

Who is this site for and how can it help?
