Supporting Your Child

Promoting Mental Health

'With the help of children, young people, their families and others, Gloucestershire Clinical Commissioning Group have written a five-year plan called 'Gloucestershire's Future in Mind'. The aim of the plan is to try and make things better for children and young people with mental health problems in Gloucestershire.

We found that children and young people want to know what help and support is available to them locally and nationally. They want to know how they can help themselves and which websites they can trust. That is why we have created the On Your Mind website. We hope that this website will enable young people to get help when they need it and also do things to make themselves stronger, so they are more able to cope when things are tough.

On Your Mind was developed with Stroud District Youth Council, Gloucestershire Young Carers, Gloucestershire County Council Ambassadors for Vulnerable Children and Young People and the pupils from the High School for Girls in Gloucestershire. They told us what they wanted from the website and created the fantastic artwork that really brings the site to life.'
