On My Mind | Mental Health Support Website

On My Mind is a new website hosted by the Anna Freud Centre which 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.

Co-produced with young people, the site consists of 8 free digital resources aimed at those aged up to 25:

We also have a resource section for schools, colleges, workplaces and services where you can download leaflets, posters, flyers and access other resources such as our animations for schools for free.

On My Mind has been co-produced with young people from the start.  They have helped us shape the site, write the content and have approved the final product. All content created by young people has also been reviewed and approved by our clinical team.  We continue to workshop with young people elements of the page and young people can get involved in our activities and research through the Get Involved page.
