Self-referral to services 

If you are under 18 years old and feeling low at this time and think that you may need some specialist support, you or your family/ carer can now self-refer into services rather than wait for a GP or other health professional to refer you.

If you are under 16 years old, you will need to ask your parent or carer’s agreement where possible, this is called parental consent.

Please note: these forms are currently being reviewed by young people and future editions may change.
