“We hope that this service will help young people and their families when they most need support.”
Extracts from TFN article by Gavin Stuart, 19th November 2019:
A new support programme being piloted in Edinburgh aims to improve children’s wellbeing and relieve pressure on mental health services.
Living Life To The Full is a guided self-help system delivered in classrooms and via one-one-one sessions with pupils at Castlebrae High School in Craigmillar.
Young people who have had their referral to mental health services rejected, or who are awaiting their first appointment, will also be able to self-refer to the programme for support.
The initiative is being run by SAMH (Scottish Association for Mental Health) with funding from the Edinburgh Children’s Hospital Charity (ECHC).
