BUZZ US is a confidential text messaging service for young people in North Yorkshire aged 11-18. The service allows young people the opportunity to message a wellbeing worker for support, signposting information or advice around mental health and wellbeing. Some of the main reasons young people text BUZZ US are around: anxiety, bullying, self-harm, eating problems, self-esteem and stress. Young people can text 07520 631168, a wellbeing worker is on duty Monday-Thursday 9am-5pm and Friday 9am-4.30pm (excluding bank holidays). Outside of these hours, a bounce back text will be sent, signposting young people to emergency services and CAMHS crisis if they need immediate support in the meantime. We aim to reply to all messages within one working day; however this service is not for young people in crisis.
