Advice and support
We're here to support you and your carers every step of the way, from the moment you first start using our services, throughout your treatment and beyond.
We’ll help you through your treatment and recovery, and can put you in touch with the help you need once you are discharged from our Trust.
If you need advice and support and you are currently receiving a service from our Trust (such as support from a psychiatrist or care co-ordinator) please make contact with them as soon as possible and refer to the help given in your care plan.
Alternatively, check out our Advice and Support pages. These are listed to the right if you’re on a computer or tablet, or below if you’re on a smart phone.

Support in York for young people
Our Trust provides a specialist CAMHS inpatient service for young people in York who may have more severe mental health and emotional health needs. A young person cannot be self-referred to our service. If a young person or their family/carers feels that they need inpatient care, they need to approach their local community CAMHS team via their GP.
The Go-To – https://www.thegoto.org.uk/ – is designed to be a portal or ‘single point of information’ showcasing the mental health support services and information offered by different agencies in North Yorkshire.
This website will signpost a young person to the most appropriate support and will have lots of useful tips and information to help a young person cope with stress or anxiety.
Young people from North Yorkshire Young Minds Combined – a group made up of members of North Yorkshire’s Youth Parliament and other youth voice groups – helped to design the new website which has sections aimed at young people, parents, carers, GPs and other professionals.
