Mental health and emotional wellbeing


Future in Mind 

Future in Mind sets out a clear, national ambition to transform the design and delivery of a local offer of services for children and young people with mental health needs. It covers the following themes:

  1. Promoting resilience, prevention and early intervention
  2. Improving access to effective support—a system without tiers.
  3. Care for the most vulnerable
  4.  Accountability and transparency
  5. Developing the workforce

Our local transformation plan will support and deliver alongside our local prevention and early intervention model which values the importance of intervening from the ante-natal period and in the early years, supporting families and those who care for children and building resilience through to adulthood.


Kooth is a safe, confidential and non-stigmatized way for young people to receive free counselling, advice and support online. The website is staffed by fully trained and qualified counsellors and available from 12pm until 10pm each night, and weekends from 6pm – 10pm, 365 days per year, it provides a much needed confidential and instant access service for young people aged 11-25.

Young Minds Matter

Young Minds Matter is an emotional wellbeing and mental health service for children and young people in North East Lincolnshire. The service focusses on prevention, early intervention and building a resilient community.

Based at Freshney Green the multi-disciplinary team can help with a range of mental health and emotional wellbeing problems.

What we do

We provide emotional wellbeing advice and specialist mental health services for children and young people up to the age of 19 (25 if receiving support for special educational needs and disability –  SEND). These services are designed to help with a wide range of emotional wellbeing and mental health needs including:

  • Anxiety
  • Mood related disorders such as depression and bipolar
  • Trauma
  • Eating disorders
  • Self harm
  • Mental health difficulties associated with a physical health problem

We have some pathways where we accept referrals via a multiagency panel, not from our usual sources of referrals. These are:

  • Children in public care
  • Young people displaying harmful sexual behavior
  • Assessment for autistic spectrum condition and Asperger’s syndrome
  • Assessment and if necessary medication management for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)

We all have mental health, like we all have physical health. Both change throughout our lives. And, like our bodies, our minds can become unwell.

Mental health problems might actually be more common than you think. One in four of us will be affected by mental illness in any year. The effects are as real as a broken arm, even though there isn’t a sling or plaster cast to show for it.

Mental Health Crisis (Adults)

The Crisis Home Treatment Service provides an open referral system where people can self-refer via the Single Point of Access. The service can be contacted 24 hours a day, seven days a week, by calling (01472) 256256 option 3 for mental health support. The Acute Crisis Home Treatment Service is based at Harrison House, Peaks Lane, Grimsby

Older people’s mental health

Mental health problems are extremely common, affecting around one in four people. This raises to two in five for people living in care homes. As you get older, changes in your life, such as bereavement, illness or retirement, can make you more vulnerable to them, but mental health problems are not a normal part of ageing.

Where should I go for help?

If your negative feelings don’t go away or you’re having trouble coping with them, you could benefit from some help and support. You could:

  • Talk to your GP
  • Tell someone you trust
  • Call an emotional support helpline like Samaritans (116 123) or the Silver Line (0800 4 70 80 90)
  • Call a specialist mental health helpline like Rethink (0300 5000 927) or Mind (0300 123 3393)

NAViGO  provide local assessment, treatment and support to older people with mental illness through a number of different services.

Support for safeguarding adults is provided by Focus .
