Healthy Young Minds is Stockport's Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service. Healthy Young Minds works with children and young people with a range of emotional or behavioural problems such as anxiety, depression, OCD, trauma, eating disorders, self-harm, suicidal urges or challenging behaviours. Healthy Young Minds also helps diagnose and then support young people with neuro-developmental disorders such as ADHD, ASD and Tic Disorders.

Healthy Young Minds does not usually work with problems like grief, anger, stress or unhappiness as these problems are usually best addressed through schools and through friends and family. Everyone has times in their life when they feel very sad and things are very difficult. It is not always helpful to see these times as being signs of mental health problems needing ‘treatment’ but as a natural part of life and living where support from friends and family and other trusted adults is the best way to move forward.
