16 - 19 Mental Health Team


We are going to be working in partnership with Visyon from October of this year. This will hopefully enable us to make our service more accessible and provide more options for engagement with services. We work with specific Mental Health needs and work collaboratively with the young people that access our service treating them as young adults working toward improving well being, independence, robustness and resilience. If required we support transition into Adult Services.
