About the service

Chat Health School Nurse Text Service

Chat Health is a text service from Children and Families that enables young people at secondary school to reach out to the school nurse team to ask for help about a range of issues, or make an appointment with a school nurse confidentially.

The service is for anyone aged 11-19 at secondary school looking for confidential advice on a wide range of issues such as bullying, emotional health and wellbeing, sexual health as well as illnesses. 

Young people using the service feel it is a less embarrassing to ask for health advice on personal issues by text than in person or over the phone.

Through Chat Health, young people can also be linked into other local services including emotional support or sexual health services.

Chat Health is:

  • Confidential
  • Quick and easy
  • Anonymous
  • Non-judgemental
