BESTIE is an exciting, interactive online platform, designed to help young people to find out more about emotional wellbeing and mental health and to get the right help when they need it. BESTIE's virtual, interactive world combines digital media, instant messaging, built-in games and supportive online help and information, all within an anonymous, safe platform. BESTIE was created by a team of young people (with a little help from NHS mental health professionals from Worcestershire Health and Care Trust and online tech folk). BESTIE encourages users to engage in social, physical and health-related activities. Check out BESTIE’s features and find out where to sign up below.
Browse through resources on a range of topics. When you find the ones you like best, you can save them to your personal space! Information is updated regularly, so keep checking for new stuff. For young people in Worcestershire, we have loads of information about CAMHS (which stands for Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service) including VR walkarounds of all of our buildings, so you can see what it’s like to come and visit us.
Play games when you’re in need of distraction (or just want some fun!) New games will be uploaded, so keep checking here for more details. Find new ways of getting out of the house and into the world with our activity games.
For young people who are accessing Worcestershire CAMHS, the following additional features are available. Ask your clinician for more info…
Talk to like minded people and clinicians on our anonymous platform. Groups are by invitation in CAMHS and a clinician is always present in those groups.
Track your emotions and goals using your own character!
Our BESTIE diaries can help you to keep track of things going on in your life and can help to remind you of things you’ve been working on in CAMHS (including giving yourself rewards!)
