Youth Emotional Support Service

The Youth Emotional Support (YES) service has been rolled out to cover all of West Sussex.

 

GPs can now refer to services in Burgess Hill, Lancing, Littlehampton and Bognor Regis, in addition to the services already available in Chichester, Crawley, Horsham and Worthing.

 

Young people may also self-refer by walking in to one of the FindItOut centres or by contacting YES by telephone or e-mail (contact details below).

 

YES supports young people aged over 11 and under 18 with issues relating to emotional wellbeing that would not meet the criteria for CAMHS, including:     

  • Low-level self-harm
  • Low mood and mild depression
  • Anxiety and exam stress
  • Low self-esteem
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Family issues such as bereavement or separation
  • Anger
  • Isolation and disengagement from education

Trained caseworkers offer intensive support and assist young people to access counselling, family support, group programmes and support from other agencies. YES can make referrals to CAMHS if symptoms worsen.

The service saw over 500 young people in 2015. Just 8% went on to require further support from CAMHS. This year it expects to provide timely, accessible and effective emotional wellbeing support to over 1,000 young people across West Sussex.

Information for young people is available from the YES website and from the YES leaflet. Copies of the leaflet can be ordered by phone or e-mail.

The YES advice line is open for queries from GPs, other professionals and young people themselves. This number replaces any previous numbers that may have been used to contact YES. The line is open Mon-Fri 9am-4pm (messages and call back requests can be left out of hours).
