On My Mind - website for young people
On My Mind has been launched to help young people have more engagement in mental health support and to give them a greater say in the treatment they receive and the outcomes they desire. The Anna Freud Centre has co-produced On My Mind with young people and it has been clinically approved by the Centre. The website is primarily for young people aged 11-25, but it is also a resource for GPs, schools or parents who can signpost young people to the website.
