A new NHS telephone line, 0300 2000 000, is now available for anyone on Teesside to call if they are concerned about a child or young person’s (up to 18th birthday) emotional wellbeing.
Open Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm (excluding Bank Holidays), the line is available to anyone including parents, carers, school staff, health professionals and GPs. Children and young people worried about their own mental health can also call the number.
Lynne Brown, TEWV service manager for CAMHS in Teesside, said: “We want to speak to children and young people, or any concerned adult, about their emotional and wellbeing worries as soon as possible. Doing so means we can make sure the right support is offered early on before things build up or get worse.
