How can we help?

When young people have health problems it can sometimes be distressing for them and for everyone in the family. Having difficulties with your health may feel difficult and can impact on your thoughts, feelings, behaviours and wellbeing. Our service offers a chance for young people and their families to talk about these areas, and where appropriate work together to find ways of dealing with things that can help them to cope with their situation. The way individual children and families cope with, and adjust to, the challenges they face can be different for everyone.
