Resources for Children & Young People

Growing Healthy



A new website has been launched, dedicated to helping children and young people in North Yorkshire find mental health support.

The Go-To – – is designed to be a portal or ‘single point of information’ showcasing the mental health support services offered by different agencies in the county.

With the majority of young people currently not in school and many in isolation as a result of the restrictions imposed on movement to deal with the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, health leaders believe online mental health support for young people has never been more important.
