Open Minds (CAMHS) is now able to offer access to free on-line support for young people, parents and carers.
SilverCloud is a digital form of mental health support that is recommended by NICE-National Institute for Health and Care Excellence.
Northpoint has worked with Silvercloud and young people from Calderdale to develop digital programmes which are clinically designed to help young people and parents/carers to understand and alleviate the symptoms of anxiety and low mood. We now offer two programmes of support for managing ADHD in children and young people.
This support is free, accessible and involves minimal waits. A ‘Supporter’ from Open Minds (CAMHS) will provide on-line encouragement, guidance and advice and help monitor risk and effectiveness.
In order to benefit from Silvercloud support, young people (aged 14+) or their parents/carers will need access to a device (smartphone, tablet and laptop) and be IT literate. This support is not suitable for young people where there are significant risk concerns.

The following programmes are currently available:
