Family Support Hubs Newsletter – 20 May 2020

This most recent edition of the Newsletter is also available to download at http://www.cypsp.hscni.net/download/documents/COVID-19-Weekly-Family-Support-Newsletter.pdf

As this is Mental Health Awareness  week the focus is primarily on mental health services both for adults and young people.

This includes services around addiction, anxiety management , depression  and self –harming which have been identified as  particular concerns at the present  time.

There are links to CAMHS and other voluntary /community supports as well as advice and training.

Also included are links to debt advice organisations as this often has a serious impact on mental health.

Another concern is how young people see their future during this unprecedented period so you will find a  link to the Careers Service as well the Education Authority’s High Five primary support and provisions for younger children.

Included are details of other organisations such as those who support children with disabilities, school age mothers  and those  who have sent through details they wanted to share with you.

These week`s good news story features the work of the Barnardos Thrive Project in Newtownabbey. This is another excellent example of the range of work being undertaken and the close collaboration evident across the community ,voluntary and statutory sectors in local communities.
