Please see below a new animation video that has been produced to help you choose the right NHS service for your illness or injury.
A new website has been launched to help children and young people across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough tackle mental health issues. The website was designed with input from children and young people. Being a young person can be challenging - with exams, changes at school, changing relationships... The site brings together good, reliable information on mental health and wellbeing. The information on the site is relevant to everyone (children and young people, parents and carers, and other professionals). We hope you find it helpful.
