Teenagers and Young Adults


Many parents and young people do talk about health care problems together, but many do find it very difficult, especially when this may be of a personal nature such as contraception or sexual health, depression or drug problems. Asking your Doctor for help and advice can be very reassuring, and can help relieve the stress you may be feeling in thinking about such issues.


In exceptional circumstances, the Doctor may believe that keeping a secret puts either you as the patient or someone else at risk of harm. For example, if he/she suspects you were being seriously hurt in some way and may wish to involve other Health Care Professionals in helping you. Of course, this would not be passed without first discussing this option with you.

Below you will find some useful services:


Worried about yours or your child’s behaviour or mental health and not sure what’s normal? Wondering whether to go and see your GP? Perhaps you’ve been referred to specialist services but there is a long wait…or perhaps you’ve been told the problem isn’t quite serious enough to be referred.
