Point 1 offers professional support for children and young people (age 0-18), who are experiencing the early signs of mental health and emotional problems.
This emotional well-being service is delivered by Ormiston Children and Families Trust, working with the youth charity MAP and Norfolk and Suffolk Foundation Trust (NSFT).
The service is available to any child or young person who is living in Norfolk or Waveney, or registered with a Norfolk or Waveney GP. The service covers the whole of Norfolk, with bases in Great Yarmouth, Norwich, Thetford, King's Lynn and North Walsham.
The service offers short-term interventions to address the early signs of mental ill-health. This is to ensure children and young people go on to achieve their full potential in life. Interventions include things such as:
The service also works with the local community to de-stigmatise issues around mental health. Their aim is to raise awareness, so that children, young people and their families understand when and how to seek support.
Ask any professional or support worker working with you and your child, to refer them to Point 1. For example your GP, health visitor, your child’s teacher, a children’s services worker or any voluntary agency.
Alternatively, you can request a referral directly. Young people over age 14 can contact us independently.
