Our new Starting Well in Worcestershire service brings together teams of staff who provide help and support to children, young people and families. The service will provide support to expectant mums, to new born babies, to school aged children and teenagers and will work to encourage development and progress.

Staff within the Starting Well service will be trained to help overcome emotional, mental and physical issues and will be supported by a telephone advisory service and other online resources which children, young people and families can access for advice and support.

Our team is the soon to be launched emotional wellbeing service, operating as part of the Starting Well service in Worcestershire. Our team will specifically focus on providing early support to children and young people aged 5-19 years old, who may be experiencing emotional difficulties. Initially we will offer groups or one to one support for children and young people experiencing mild to moderate anxiety. Our vision is to extend this support to those experiencing low mood and/or self harm.
