Emotional Health and Wellbeing

Thoughtscape – First Stop for your Mental Health

Thoughtscape is a collaborative service offer for emotional wellbeing, resilience and mental health support for children and young people in St Helens. This offer results in easier, early access to support when a child or young person is struggling with their emotional health or wellbeing by delivering a 'no wrong front door’ model.

We are also proud that the name and strapline for this collaboration were created and selected by the children and young people of St Helens.

This offer will provide support and interventions to children and young people with mild to moderate mental health and wellbeing problems including anxiety, low mood and behavioural difficulties. The three main service delivery partners within this offer are the Resilience Teams (Barnardo’s), Mental Health Support Teams (NHS) and Kooth.
