RE:Start

Welcome to RE:Start!

Youth Works, on behalf of the REACH Partnership of Youth Counselling Services, have been commissioned to deliver an innovative new project to support young people making the transition from Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAHMS) to Adult Mental Health Services. RE:Start is exclusively for 16 – 25 year olds, who live in Northamptonshire, and need additional support with navigating mental health services.

This time can already be challenging for many young people, with big life changes and transitions being difficult to navigate – without adding mental health issues on top of this. RE:Start will work on a referral basis, which can be done as a self-referral or can be done by a professional on your behalf.

RE:Start will operate on a personal, goal-driven and holistic approach to the support provided to you. Building trust and gaining a robust understanding of your needs, whether this be with education, employment, housing or any other complex area of life which is made more difficult when navigating the world of mental health services. This flexible approach will allow us to not be a time-limited service, we can offer support for as long or as little as you need, and in agreement with your allocated support worker to meet your agreed upon goals.

The ethos and culture of the service will be solution-focused, strengths-based, personalised, flexible and will be able to work with a variety of complex needs, regardless of diagnosis.

The team of support workers at Youth Works will cover the North Northamptonshire area – Corby, Kettering, Wellingborough and anywhere further East of the county. If you would like to find out more about our team please visit the ‘Meet The Team’ Page. There is also a team of support workers in the West Northamptonshire area, which is managed by The Lowdown. To access the service for this area please visit The Lowdown’s website.
