As part of the ‘Driving Change in Mental Health and Wellbeing for Children, Young People and Their Families’ transformation project, there are three new digital mental health services available across Clackmannanshire open to young people and their families.
- Mind Moose provides a series of online modules for 5-12 year olds, covering topics such as resilience, anxiety and mindfulness, that are delivered in school alongside a trusted adult. Access to Mind Moose is via the normal staged intervention process in school, so if a child is suitable for the programme, the school would discuss this with their parents/ carers.
- Togetherall is an online community offering peer support, courses and information on a wide range of topics for 16-26 year olds experiencing mild to moderate difficulties with their mental health. Anyone in this age range can register by heading to www.togetherall.com with their date of birth and postcode.
- Shout is the UK’s first text-based crisis intervention service. Anyone can text ‘Clacks’ to 85258 to be put through to a trained volunteer who can help them feel calmer and develop a plan to stay safe if required. Clackmannanshire are the first local authority in Scotland to be working in partnership with Shout. Further information on the Shout service can be found at https://giveusashout.org/
