Footsteps is our dedicated mental health service for young people in the Stockton area.
Designed by young people, for young people, it's a GP-led service which supports people with mental health concerns.
History of Footsteps
Footsteps started as the idea of Dr Fiona Smith, a GP in our area, who saw that the mental health services for young people in our area were not being met.
In 2017, we consulted 1,500 young people across the area and used their responses to guide how we built the service.
We still have a youth panel who regularly give their opinions about the service and how we can best support our young people.
