The magazine-style toolkit is designed to be a comprehensive resource for young people on waiting lists for mental health support, offering a wealth of information including strategies, local support, and top tips and videos created by young people to help navigate the challenges they face. This is not a replacement for mental health support, it is aimed at making the wait a little easier and preventing escalation.
