ChatHealth opens a new line of communication for young people across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough

The Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Healthy Child Programme has successfully implemented ChatHealth – a secure and confidential text messaging service for young people aged 11-19 across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough who are struggling to cope with issues such as bullying, emotional health, relationship problems, alcohol and drugs.

The confidential text messaging service opens a new line of communication to young people and gives them an excellent opportunity to anonymously get in touch with a healthcare professional for that much-needed support with a simple touch of a button.

ChatHealth, which is run by the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Healthy Child Programme, is available to people Monday to Friday between: 9.30am to 4.00pm. To access the service all users need to do is TEXT 07480 635 443 to start a conversation. Anyone who tries to reach out to ChatHealth for help out of hours will receive a bounce back message explaining where to get help if their question is urgent, and when they can expect a response. Texts are usually replied to within one working day and cost the same as a standard text or will come out of your contract message allowance.

For further information, please contact the Healthy Child Programme on:0300 029 50 50

This service is part of the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough 0-19 Healthy Child Programme which is delivered in partnership by Cambridgeshire Community Services NHS Trust and Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust.
