Compass BUZZ aim to strengthen the mental health and wellbeing of children and young people age 5-18 (25 with SEND) across North Yorkshire.
To build on the existing service they already provide are excited to launch the new Compass BUZZ website https://compassbuzz.org/
The website has been designed for a wide audience; to appeal to children and young people and also provide details for parents on how to support them. For parents and young children age 5-10 we have focus on four key areas:
- BEEing Bullied
- BEEing Angry
- BEEing Worried
- BEEing Sad
For young people age 11-18, it can be hard growing up and they can face lots of different issues. Compass Buzz's website offers help and support around some of the most common mental health and wellbeing difficulties:
- Eating problems
- Low mood
- Low self esteem
- Regulating emotions
Also included is detailed information on Compass Buzz's offer to fully inform professionals, setting out details of training packages, the Request for Support process for schools and some Frequently Asked Questions.
There are some amazing clips which were filmed with the help young people form Stokesley School and Harrogate Youth Council and Compass Buzz's anxiety animation was developed with huge thanks to Paige whose words needed to be heard. For even more brilliant clips you can also access the new Compass BUZZ YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCSQpojZkWC5_nXQ8QwW5UVA
