On My Mind aims to empower young people to make informed choices about the mental health support they want, the treatments they receive and the outcomes they desire.

It contains information, advice and resources to help young people support their own mental health, including signposting to sources of support in times of crisis and tools to help young people manage their own wellbeing. 

The free digital resources are designed for use by children and young people between the ages of 10 – 25. These may be young people who are thinking about looking for support, who may be receiving or waiting to receive support or for those the traditional offer does not appeal to or has not worked for and who want help and information about self-managing their own mental health and wellbeing.

Co-produced with young people to help other young people, the sites key goals are:

  1. to make sure that no young person should feel like they have nowhere to turn when experiencing problems with their mental health and wellbeing
  2. to make mental health treatment and support transparent and easy to understand for young people
  3. to promote choice and shared decision making by empowering young people voice’s in their own treatment.

Developed with support from experts at the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families, On My Mind is a resource from a trusted organisation which parents, schools and services can also feel confident signposting young people to.
