New Wellbeing Support Line for Young People in Sheffield

New Wellbeing Support Line for Young People in Sheffield

A new support line has been launched to help young people with issues such as low mood, anxious thoughts and loneliness.

Youth charity Sheffield Futures, NHS Sheffield Clinical Commissioning Group and Sheffield Children’s NHS Foundation Trust have come together to create the support line so young people in the city aged 12–18 can talk about issues they’re struggling with.

The service is run by emotional health and wellbeing practitioners who are part of the Door 43 wellbeing service at Sheffield Futures.

The team can speak to young people who might be struggling with challenges such as exam stress, relationship issues, bullying or isolation.

The service can also signpost young people to additional services if they require more long-term support.

Jeff Perring, Medical Director at Sheffield Children’s, said: “This provision is really welcome. Our Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) are continuing to work hard to provide support for children and young people at this time. This new phone line provides young people with an additional way to talk about things they may be struggling with and is a great asset to the care provision already available.”

The support line is open Mon – Fri 5pm-9pm and Saturday 9am-9pm, call 0808 275 8892. For more information about Door43 visit www.sheffieldfutures.org.uk

A fantastic presentation thought provoking and good questions from the floor around promoting this film/message to the general public not just professionals.

When I moved to Sheffield nearly five years ago it was my "go to" organisation. I expect it to stay that way. All the staff and volunteers seem to pull out little gems of effort that disabled people like me couldn't do without. Professionally and personally - I love em :)

Disability Sheffield is a forward-thinking, energetic organisation doing a lot of positive work in Sheffield. I have no doubt they will continue to do so for a long time to come.
