About the Getting Advice team
Bromley Y is committed to strengthening access to mental health and wellbeing services and having a strong reach into the community to ensure that ‘mental health is everyone’s business’. We work closely with schools and other services/professionals that work with young people in the borough and continue to build on existing relationships as well as developing new relationships in the community.
The Getting Advice team has a strong focus on early detection and intervention. Empowering young people to understand and support themselves, in order to build their resilience and manage their wellbeing. We also work with parents/carers, school staff and other professionals working with young people to create a holistic and collaborative approach to supporting the wellbeing of young people and their families.
We offer psycho-education, strategies and hints and tips through regular webinars for young people, their parents/carers and professionals. One to one interventions include:
• Guided Self Help
• Parent Led Guided Self Help
• Support for Adolescent Low Mood and Anxiety
• Support Calls for parents/carers who may not need a full referral, but could benefit from some advice, containment and appropriate signposting.
‘The Signpost’ is our text support service for 11- 18yr olds with one of our practitioners providing advice, guidance, understanding and signposting. Texts are responded to within 24hrs Monday to Friday between 9am and 5pm.
