Children/young people's mental health

The  0-19 Healthy Child Programme

The  0-19 Healthy Child Programme offers every family a programme of screening tests, immunisations, developmental reviews, and information and guidance to support parenting and healthy choices – all services that children and families need to receive if they are to achieve their optimum health and wellbeing. As we sit under two local authorities; Norfolk and Suffolk County Councils, there are two separate services for children and their families living in Great Yarmouth and Waveney.

In Norfolk, the service is called Just One Norfolk www.justonenorfolk.nhs.uk or call 0300 300 0123

If you need to book or change an appointment or seek health advice or information, just ring at any time from 8.00 am to 6.00 pm Monday to Friday, and 9.00 am to 1.00 pm on a Saturday. The service is also available for key stakeholders such as social care and GP practice nurses to refer clients for non-emergency issues.

If you would like support, the website includes a range of information from breastfeeding to school nurses with helpful contact details for agencies and providers in your area.

 

Mental Health 

Are you under 18 and want help for worries? Find it hard to cope? Are you a family member or carer and need advice or support?

Point 1 logoPoint1 is a local service that is here for you.

They offer professional support for infants, children and young people experiencing the early signs of mental health and emotional problems.

They offer short-term help to address the early signs of mental ill-health, to ensure infants, children and young people go on to achieve their full potential in life. Their services are delivered by Ormiston Families, working with the Norwich youth charity MAP and Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust (NSFT). They also work with the local community to de-stigmatise issues around mental health. Our aim is to raise awareness so that children, young people and their families understand when and how to seek support.
