A new service which offers 10 to 18-year-olds in Surrey a safe place to go and talk about their worries and mental health has been officially opened by the Chairman of Surrey County Council, Peter Martin.
The CYP Haven, located at The Discovery Centre in Guildford, is run as a partnership by Surrey and Borders Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, Surrey County Council and Guildford and Waverley Clinical Commissioning Group.
Mary Lewis, Surrey County Council’s Cabinet Member for Education, who attended the official opening on 20 July, said: “This new service will be a great source of support for young people when they need it most. By working together as one team with health services, we can make sure support offered at the CYP Haven is closely tailored to young people’s needs, helping to prevent difficulties escalating and reducing the need for them to go to hospital for the assistance they need.”
