A MENTAL health trust has launched a confidential website for kids with emotional, behaviour and mental health problems.
Oxleas NHS Trust, which provides mental health, social care and learning disabilities services in Bexley, Bromley and Greenwich, launched the website www.camhscares. nhs.uk on July 24.
Children were involved in developing the website which is the first of its kind in the country.
It aims to provide information on issues young people often worry about and on services and support available.
The Teen Zone and Kids Zone are especially designed for young people and children, but the whole site is for anyone to use -- parents, grandparents, carers, young people and children.
Naushin Shariff from the Bexley Youth Council who was involved in the development of the website, said: "The key issue for young people is that the website is confidential.
"It is interactive and there are sections where you can add your own content, for example, artwork.
