This is a mental health and wellbeing site that has been co-designed with young people from Hull on behalf of the NHS Hull CCG.
The aim of the site is to help children, young people and their families to understand emotional and mental health issues, to promote self-help tips and techniques, and to help to make the ‘system’ easier to navigate within local services.

The site gives details of: some of the behaviours associated with poor mental health; the levels of support that are available; the approaches that would be used to support issues; the referral process; and external websites available for further information.
