Dr Becky Foljambe, co-founder of the Bassetlaw Children and Young Person Mental Health Alliance with Helen Azar (the other co-founder and Head of Health Inequalities Bassetlaw Based Place Partnership) and Georgia Crossland (Service Manager, The Centre Place, Talkzone) joined forces to produce a booklet to support and educate young people in their wait for mental health appointments.
This booklet basic draft was taken to a group of dedicated and passionate young people who built the information into a 32 page innovative, inspiring and interactive resource, by young people for young people.
We had some fantastic professional contributors too, to make sure the information was evidence-based and as supportive and accurate as it could be, to help young people in their sometimes stressful wait for mental health support.
Our thanks to Dr Tilly Spurr (Senior Lecturer in Sports and Exercise Nutrition, University of Chichester), Georgie Hunt (trainee Psychologist) and Alice Hendy (Founder of Ripple Suicide Prevention) for this additional support in making the resource what it is now.
