THE NHS has launched a new website to support young people’s mental health.

Children and young people across Sussex can now look up advice about mental health from the dedicated site.

It can be found at and has been created by Sussex Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) and provided by Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust.

It helps children and young people learn more about their mental health and how to find support if they need it.

The site also has information for parents and those working with children and young people.

It is divided in to three sections – for children and young people, parents, and carers and professionals.

Each provides information on mental health difficulties young people may face, including anxiety, depression, eating difficulties and psychosis.

Jacqui Batchelor and Dr Elaine Creith of CAMHS, said: “We are delighted to be launching this new website. The project started from listening to young people who said that they wanted to have a website which was just for them, and not aimed at adults.

“We made a real effort to take their views on board and held creative workshops with young people from across Sussex who have used our services so that they could tell us what was important for them, what the website should include and what it should look like.
