Emotional Wellbeing & Mental Health Service
Stepping Stones is an emotional wellbeing and mental health service for children and young people aged 8 to 25 years in the Cheviot area. Provided by Cheviot Youth, the programme offers emotional wellbeing support, group work, counselling, CBT and 1to1 sessions for those with diagnosed or suspected mental ill health or who may benefit from emotional support. This service also extends to parents and carers of young people as we very much recognise the wider impact emotional wellbeing and mental health difficulties can have.
The team of six practitioners come from a range of backgrounds and experience from youth work, counselling, mental health and additional needs and work collaboratively with Scottish Borders Council, the NHS and other services both in the community and within local schools.
We work with a wide range of difficulties from general anxiety, disruptive behaviour and exam stress to self-harm, eating disorders and suicidality. Referrals can be made by anyone including young people themselves, and we are happy to work with people who may also be engaging with other services.
During these difficult and unprecedented times, we continue to provide support at the Broomlands Hub as well as over the phone and via video call. Our service is free to use and we can provide tablets to enable access to video sessions for those who may not have their own device.
