Spectrum.Life has launched its new services dedicated to children and young individuals’ mental wellbeing.
These services provide evidence-based interventions, offering access to counselling support, guaranteeing timely care without waiting periods and are run by qualified experts in child and youth mental health.
According to Spectrum.Life parents’ concerns are growing as a result of the rise in mental health illnesses among young people, with 1 in 10 aged 5-16 having diagnosable issues and 1 in 5 aged 8-25 having probable disorders.
A recent NSPCC survey found that 56 per cent of parents of children aged 12 to 17 and 47 per cent of parents of children aged 6 to 11 expressed concern about the mental health of their children.
Furthermore, half of all mental health disorders manifest by the age of 14, highlighting the importance of early intervention.
Spectrum.Life chief clinical operations officer Dr Emelina Ellis says: “I am extremely proud and excited about the launch of our Child and Young Person Mental Health Services and to offer evidence-based and best-in-class interventions and services provided by highly specialised experts in the field of mental health for children and young people. We understand the importance of early intervention and support for children and young people struggling with their emotional health. No child or young person should have to face their mental health challenges alone, and we are here to provide the professional support they need.”
Ellis adds: “We recognise that starting a conversation about mental health with a child can be daunting for parents. That is why our Child and Young Person Mental Health Services are specifically designed to address the individual needs of each child in an age-appropriate and empathetic manner. Our team of expert mental health specialists are experienced in working with children and young people, ensuring that they receive the care and support they deserve.
“Across the country many children and young people are suffering, and our goal is to provide them with timely access to the correct interventions and help they need. Our comprehensive service ensures that they receive the support they need to build resilience and navigate life’s challenges with confidence. We believe that every child and young person, regardless of their needs or family background, should have access to quality mental health support. Our Child and Young Person Mental Health Services aim to empower children, young people and their families to take control of their mental health and wellbeing.
“Our team is thrilled to launch this service beginning in March and look forward to making a positive impact on the lives of children, young people, and their families. Together, we can create a healthier and more supportive society for the next generation. Our dedicated efforts will help to reduce waiting times for children and young people significantly, now enabling them to access our services immediately and cut down.”
