When you recognize that they are experiencing difficulties with their mental health, they can refer themselves or ask their key worker to refer them.

What we can offer

Low intensity mental health advice and support for you who are experiencing mild to moderate issues such as anxiety, depression, panic disorder, social phobia and conduct disorders.


If you are aged 10-25 and live in Cheshire West or 8-25 and from the Wirral, we can support you with your mental health difficulties and promote a positive therapy focus/outcome. We offer Digital Mental health Support to you if you are from Cheshire West, Cheshire East, Halton, Merseyside and Wirral.
