Children's Mental Health Week: 1st-7th February 2021

We have all been through a lot over the past year and it's important that we all talk about how we are feeling. Help is out there if you or your child needs to speak to someone.

In Dorset we have free and confidential mental health services that can help support your child.

Kooth is a free, confidential online service that helps young people aged 11 – 18 who want to talk about their mental health and emotional wellbeing.

ChatHealth is a free school nursing text service available to all young people aged 11-19. Young people can use this service to get advice about a range of subjects including mental health, relationships and drugs and alcohol.

Dorset Council's Educational Psychology Service has a helpline to support those who are worried about their child or teenager during the lockdown.
