Health support - children with disabilities and learning needs

Emotion wellbeing and mental health

In Bromley there is a single point of referral for asking for help and support from services for a child or young person who has emotional or mental health difficulties via the Bromley Community Wellbeing Service.

The Bromley Community Wellbeing Service helps children and young people with a range of emotional and mental health difficulties. This includes: anger, anxiety, behaviour problems, bullying, depression, eating problems, family problems, grief, relationships, self-harm, sexuality and gender identity issues, and feeling suicidal. Children and young people supported through the service may be offered 1 to 1 therapy, group work or family work. Referrals can be made by the young person directly, a parent or a professional.
