Young Adults Service

Our Young Adults Service (YAS) aims to ensure a smooth and supportive transition for young adults aged 17.5 to 25, in Chesterfield, Derbyshire Dales and the High Peak area.


We address the 'cliff edge of care' by reducing escalating needs and ongoing mental health distress, accepting referrals from CAMHs or AMHs

What do we do?

  • Onward transition planning from CAMHS to YAS.

  • Reinforcement of CAMHS provision with clear progression pathways.

  • Resilience building through Wellness and Recovery planning tools.

  • Individual and group support, offering psycho-educational programs.

  • Evidence-based interventions, including CBT based programs.

  • Life skills development, education, training and employment support.       

How do we do it?

  • Self-esteem, confidence and independent living skills building.

  • Identifying education and training opportunities, including apprenticeships.

  • Facilitating volunteering and participation opportunities.

  • Peer support throughout the journey, with a focus on sharing lived experiences.

  • Tailored support on topics like discussing mental health with family, approaching a GP and overcoming practical and emotional barriers.

  • Introduction to community-based activities, support, and networks.
