Polaris Children’s Services deliver Progress;ons, a service that supports young adults like you to thrive in the community upon leaving Emotional Health & Wellbeing Services.

Who is this service for?


This service is for those aged 16 – 25 years who are preparing to leave Emotional Health & Wellbeing Services but do not currently meet the threshold for adult mental health services.

We aim to:

  • Support you to access community services
  • Ensure a safe transfer and continuity of care
  • Support you to build your resilience
  • Provide opportunities for you to shape the way the service is delivered




How do we deliver the service?


We will make sure you have the right support at the right time, which will be agreed by you and your Support Worker. One of our Support Workers will spend time getting to know you, listening to what you would like to happen in order to make things better in your life. Support will be for up to 12 weeks, with regular meetings between you and your Support Worker as well as telephone support depending on your needs and preferences. You will also have access to up to 8 weeks of support from a therapist to help with your progression.
