Who are we?
We provide support and treatment for children, young people and their families, who are experiencing emotional wellbeing difficulties. We support children and young people up to 19 years old. If they have a special educational need or disability or are a care leaver we can see them up to the age of 25.
Everyone at some point might find it hard to cope with how they are feeling or what is happening in their life. Healthy Minds Lincolnshire provides early support when your child starts to feel that life is getting out of control and they need some help to cope.
Our teams are made up of a variety of professionals. All staff are referred to as Healthy Minds Practitioners and have a nursing, social work, counsellor, teaching, or mental health background.
We can help your child with:
- Exam stress
- Interpersonal Skills
- Low mood
- Low self-esteem
- Low body confidence
- Coping with change
If your child would like support please speak to their teacher, GP or call us on our Lincolnshire Here4You Access Team on 0800 234 6342. If your child is under 16 we will usually need to speak to a parent or carer.
What we offer
The support we offer is based on cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) techniques, which are designed to help your child think about things differently and learn to cope in a more positive way.
We can support your child by:
- Directing your child to use self-help
- Workshops delivered online or at school to small groups of children or young people as a one off session
- Virtual groups delivered to a small number of young people, these consist of 5 to 6 sessions.
- One to one sessions with a Practitioner. These are typically delivered virtually within a school or community setting (one to six sessions).
What is emotional wellbeing?
Emotional wellbeing is about being happy, confident, having good relationships and being able to cope with everyday events.
