Text-a-Nurse

New secure and confidential text messaging service for young people aged 11-19, which will allow them to easily and anonymously get in touch with a school nurse for advice and support, about their physical and mental and emotional wellbeing.

This service will provide advice about sensitive health issues, where young people might want to avoid a face to face appointment, and school nurses can provide help, advice and support with a variety of issues including:-

  •   Emotional health and wellbeing
  •   Stress and anxiety
  •   Self-harm
  •   Alcohol and drugs
  •   Body Image
  •   Smoking
  •   Bullying
  •   Sexual health
  •   Covid related worry
  •   General health issues
