Children and young people’s mental health can be affected by their caring role. A GP Patient Survey in 2017 found that 39% of young adult carers reported experience of anxiety or depression compared with 28% of young people without a caring responsibility. It is important that you access good support for your mental health if you feel that you need it. Below are links to some of the services that support young people’s mental health in North Tyneside, as well as online support and resources.
