Are you under 18 and want help for worries? Find it hard to cope? Are you a family member or carer and need advice or support?
Point1 is a local service that is here for you. They offer professional support for infants, children and young people experiencing the early signs of mental health and emotional problems.
They offer short-term help to address the early signs of mental ill-health, to ensure infants, children and young people go on to achieve their full potential in life. Their services are delivered by Ormiston Families, working with the Norwich youth charity MAP and Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust (NSFT). They also work with the local community to de-stigmatise issues around mental health. Our aim is to raise awareness so that children, young people and their families understand when and how to seek support.
