Digital mental health support to children and young people in South Staffordshire

Children and young people experiencing anxiety, depression and other mental health issues are being offered digital emotional health and wellbeing support through a pioneering new partnership service.

Midlands Partnership NHS Foundation Trust’s (MPFT) Children and Families services have teamed up with digital mental health provider Cerebral to offer a range of online support for young people living in South Staffordshire, dependant on their need.

MPFT is the first NHS trust to partner with Cerebral, which uses online technology to make therapy and web-based support more easily accessible to children, young people and families without the need for travel.

This support is available via Cerebral’s Sandbox website and self-referrals are welcome. The consent of a parent or carer will be required for children under 12, or those 12 and over with a special education need or learning disability.
