FREE TEXT service Chat Health for 11-19 year olds
Are you 11-19 years old? You can text a school nurse for free, confidential help and advice!
Just text: 07507 329 600 (Mon-Fri 9am-4pm)
Our school nurse team can offer you advice on:
- alcohol and drugs
- body image
- bullying and cyber bullying
- exam anxiety
- family issues
- healthy eating
- mental health
- social networking
We just want to let you know a little bit about confidentiality. Unless you give permission, a School Nurse will not pass on anything you say to anyone else, like parents, teachers, or other students – except in extreme circumstances like if the health, safety or welfare of you or someone else is at significant risk. If we did need to tell someone about something you had told us, we would always try to speak with you first. For our safety and yours we hold information that you tell us on electronic records that can be seen by other healthcare professionals who all follow the same confidentiality rules - this can include your doctor. Records are kept for future use.
