CAMHS resources

Here you will find information and resources on a range of mental health and wellbeing topics. These resources can help:

  • You, if you are a young person wanting some advice or support with your mental health and wellbeing
  • Parents, carers and families of children and young people who may need advice to help support a child or young person with their mental health and wellbeing
  • Professionals including school staff, who want useful information about children and young people’s mental health and wellbeing to support you in your role. Every Mind Matters have created a suite of lesson plans covering everything from sleep to body image, and MindEd offers free e-learning sessions covering a range of topics including suicide and self-harm prevention.

You can also visit our coronavirus mental health and wellbeing pages for more information.

We’ve also created some films that can be used in KS1, primary and secondary school assemblies…

Messages of hope from young people in Wakefield

Wakefield CAMHS have been out and about speaking to local children and young people about mental health and wellbeing.

We’ve collected hundreds of ‘messages of hope’ – these are messages from young people across the Wakefield district written to inspire, give hope and to let every young person in Wakefield know that they are not alone when it comes to mental health.

We want people to know that talking about your mental health is normal. 1 in 10 young people go through problems with their mental health.

Want to get involved and help us on our journey to making mental health talk the norm? Download our message of hope template. Complete this for yourself, a friend or somebody you know who may be struggling with their mental health and wellbeing. You can share these with us if you want. Tag us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram @allofusinmind.
