  • have trouble talking or sleeping
  • hear voices or see things
  • feel angry or are struggling to control your behaviour or temper
  • find it hard to concentrate or get on with friends
  • have to check or repeat things, or worry about germs
  • don't like yourself or have low self-confidence



Children & Young People’s Emotional Wellbeing Plan 

The five-year transformation plan sets out a radical new service design which will make a big difference to the lives of young people and their families in Suffolk by 2020. 

The overall aim is to establish an integrated, family-focused response to the needs of young people in east and west Suffolk with emotional, behavioral and mental health needs. Through five big ideas and 10 priorities the plan will deliver a single-point of access to services which are evidence-based and determinedly seeking better outcomes for young people and their parents/carers.  The plan has been developed with local health and care organisations, charities, schools , young people, parents and carers and is based on five big ideas and ten priorities which we will all deliver together over the next five years.  Find out more here.
