For the past nine years MedEquip4Kids has been providing packages of resources for Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) across the UK to help the services enhance their care for the one in six children and young people in the UK with a diagnosable mental health condition such as anxiety, depression, an eating disorder, or OCD. These resources can include emotion cards, stress balls and fidget toys, arts and craft materials, role-play materials, mood cards to help with communication and understanding emotion, books, workbooks, puzzles, and more.

This year we are raising funds to support 56 CAMHS teams across the UK. We know from the evaluations and feedback we receive that these resources are making a real impact in improving the care and treatment offered to young patients with mental health difficulties. Below is a comment from CAMHS staff who have received support from us before.

“Our Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner used the Playing CBT game to support young people to think of physical symptoms when angry or anxious. This was particularly helpful with a young person who has a learning disability and struggled to identify how he felt during these times. We used feelings and emotions cards during our Big Emotions group to help young people identify with the normal emotions everyone feels.”
