Nessie is commissioned by Cambridgeshire County Council and Peterborough City Council to provide free support to families of children and young people who self-harm. Nessie offer:
· Parent workshops across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough in schools, community settings and online;
· Targeted 1-1 parent support;
· Telephone and online parent support.

Nessie is a not-for-profit organisation providing easy access to arts therapies, counselling, support, training and supervision so that children, young people and their families can thrive. We provide support through partnering with local schools, county councils and community organisations. Parents can also reach out to us directly. We are proud to offer qualified, regulated, child centered, flexible support. Our Mental Health Leads training is quality assured by the DfE. Feedback from those who have accessed Nessie’s services:

“As a team, we were really concerned for her and as a team we have been so uplifted to see the impact of all the work that has been going on. It feels like everything came together to put her back on her feet again.” (Professional)
“When I came to NESSie I didn't want to be here. My dad had taken his own life when I was young and I felt lost. I didn't fit in in school and I was bullied a lot. I have been to CAMHS before when I lived in Norfolk. I came to the centre and I really liked my therapist. I felt like she understood me. She helped me at school. She talked to my teachers. I stopped self-harming. Now, I have finished my exams and got a job. I am beginning to feel better and more confident and slowly feeling a lot less anxious.” (Young Person)
"I am so thankful for all the support you have offered" (Parent)
