Young Minds Matter is an emotional wellbeing and mental health service based in North East Lincolnshire.
The team has a wide range of expertise working with children and young people with emotional wellbeing and mental health difficulties. Our team includes mental health nurses, psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, art therapists, assistant psychologists, wellbeing practitioners, peer support workers, support staff and admin staff.
We all work together as a big team, to provide a service that supports your emotional wellbeing and/or mental health needs wherever possible. Our team has a large area of expertise which allows us to offer support to a wide range of needs. A lot of people worry that they’re coming into a doctors/hospital situation here, our team is very friendly and down-to-earth, and they do not wear white coats or give you injections.
Who is it for?
Our service is for young people and children who experience difficulties with their emotional wellbeing and/or mental health up until the age of 19. We all have ‘mental health’ but sometimes, for many different reasons some people can find it hard to keep the positive and the negatives balanced.
You may enter our service not understanding exactly what your needs are, or may not yet know the technical terms used to help describe what you’re experiencing. It is sometimes easier to discuss with us how you’re feeling and not to worry about using the “right” words. These are some of the struggles that we can help with:
What can we help you with?
- We offer advice/coping strategies to help prevent mental health or emotional wellbeing problems escalating.
- We can help if you are struggling with low mood/depression to help you feel more like yourself again.
- We can help if you are worrying and are experiencing anxiety, this could also be related to phobias, obsessive thoughts and behaviours which we could give you coping strategies so you can control them.
- We can support you with being able to work through things that have caused you trauma, so that they no longer trigger you and impact on your day-to-day life.
- We provide support for self-harm and thoughts of suicide to keep you safe when you are not well.
- We can help you with any eating difficulties/disordered eating to keep you healthy. We also support people with anorexia and bulimia by helping them to recover and to prevent relapse.
- We also offer specialist support services for children and young people with a learning disability, autism and ADHD.
