Emotional Wellbeing and Mental Health
If you have concerns about bullying, eating problems, family problems, depression, behaviour problems, grief, anxiety, identity or anger, lots of help and support is available.
You can contact Bromley Y using the details below. Self referrals are accepted. For a video on how to self refer click here. Bromley Y operates the single point of access service for children and young people's emotional and mental wellbeing in the borough. Children and young people are referred in by teachers, parents, GP or other trusted adults (or can self refer), their difficulties are discussed by experts and it is then decided how best they can be supported. This could be through therapeutic support or signposting to a more appropriate local service.
