ADULT & CHILDREN MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES
Dealing with a mental health problem is never easy, but at a young age it can be particularly confusing and difficult to cope with and worrying for the parents or carers involved.
Accessing help as early as possible is really important
It is possible to recover or learn to manage a mental health problem, but starting this process as soon as possible is crucial.
At LOVE@care we provide guidance and support to young people and adults who are worried about their mental health. If you think you need to talk to someone, or you are just looking for advice on where to start please, contact one of our staff for more information. You can also email anonymously at firstname.lastname@example.org
There is already a wide range of information and resources out there and it can be hard to know where to start. Whether you are a young person looking for help; or a parent, teacher or carer worried about a young person, we have at LOVE@care information resources and links to other organisations that maybe able to help you.
It is estimated that around 3 children in every classroom have a clinically diagnosable mental health problem and 50% of mental health problems are established by the age of 14 and 75% by the age of 24.
How LOVE@care helps
We offer intensive educational support, for children out of education, in partnership with social care workers. These young people may have found themselves in this situation for a number of reasons: mental health conditions; additional support needs; social or emotional issues that may prevent a person from fulfilling a happy, healthy life.
We work in partnership with the Scottish Children’s Services Coalition and Scottish Government to raise campaigns for children with mental health or additional support needs.
