COVID 19 help and information for children and young people

Feeling worried about our families, friends, jobs and self-isolating is understandable. You can find helpful advice from a wide range of resources for you and your parents and carers on the system-wide COVID-19 mental health webpages.

To help you think about what helps you, your parents and carers at this time, we have put together some simple guides that should help you start to find the resources you need.

NHS 24/7 helpline

To talk to someone about your mental wellbeing you can call the 24/7 NHS mental health telephone support, advice and triage helpline on 0800 038 5300.

Support is available to anyone, regardless of age, all day every day. If you or someone you know feels they need to access urgent mental health support, they will listen to you and asses how best to help.

COVID-19 children and young people health and care survey

Many children and young people’s physical and mental health services across Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly have been providing online and telephone appointments during the COVID-19 pandemic to limit the spread of the virus and keep patients and staff safe, whilst ensuring children and young people can continue to access these services safely.

We want to learn from children and young people, and their parents and carers, about their experiences of the online and telephone appointments during the pandemic. Find out more.
