This project aims to revolutionise how children and adolescents receive their care whilst they are referred and are waiting for mental health services. With key partners, this project will help the cohort maintain good mental wellbeing and reduce the burden on healthcare professionals and direct children to non-clincial voluntary sector and community assets that will assist them to “wait well”, prevent further deterioration of their wellbeing and enable self-care and management.

The web based resource provides a journalling function and supports the movement happening in health and social care to social prescribing. Based on the individuals needs and motivations, patients will be able to easily access community-based support.
