HeadScape Bexley

What is HeadScape?

HeadScape Bexley (external link)

HeadScape has been designed for young people, by other young people in Bexley (external link) and Greenwich to give them a trusted website to use for information, to check how they feel and even take a test to find out if they need help with their emotions.

From anxiety to eating disorders, phobias to bullying, depression, gender or anger issues, HeadScape covers over 30 different conditions. The site is accessible to everyone and anyone can undertake the quizzes to benefit from the tailored information and advice.

Uniquely, HeadScape offers young people the opportunity to independently undertake a mental health screening questionnaire, which when completed, provides individually tailored advice and information. Depending on the results, the site can offer young people living in Bexley the option to self-refer directly into their local Children and Young People's Mental Health Services.
