Someone from your child’s medical team asked us to meet with you or your child.
Problems with health can sometimes get in the way of school, friendships and other relationships. Feelings such as sadness, worry, frustration and anger can also come along with illness. For some young people, physical health issues can lead to mental health difficulties such as anxiety, depression and more complex difficulties. Experiencing difficulties with mental health can make it harder to cope with ongoing medical conditions and treatment.
When a child has physical health problems this can affect the whole family in many ways. When health problems are causing upset or worry in the family, or getting in the way of treatment, it can help to talk with someone. This is the type of help we provide.
