Mental Health Awareness
A new website has been launched, dedicated to helping children and young people in North Yorkshire find mental health support.
The Go-To – www.thegoto.org.uk – is designed to be a portal or ‘single point of information’ showcasing the mental health support services offered by different agencies in the county.
With the majority of young people currently not in school and many in isolation as a result of the restrictions imposed on movement to deal with the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, health leaders believe online mental health support for young people has never been more important.
Extended Access Service
During the Covid-19 pandemic we are still offering appointments outside of core hours throughout Ryedale to provide services 7 days per week. These appointments are likely to be telephone or video calls. If you do require an appointment between 6:30-8pm weekdays or on weekends, please speak to reception about availability. Please note that appointments during Extended Access hours may be offered at Derwent Practice or at GP practices in Ampleforth, Sherburn or West Ayton.
