About The Client

About The Client


We worked with NHS England to create an exciting, new mental health resource for 12-18-year-olds. Running alongside the great work that was being carried out by the NHS Trailblazers team, the site works to broaden the teams reach beyond face to face and mobile sessions, to an on-demand web service that can be accessed anywhere at any time.

The Problem

The Problem

The NHS Trailblazers platform needed to provide a one-stop-shop for displaying content and approved NHS mental health services. The site had to allow the team to promote the mental health services available and signpost to young people, their parents and carers and professionals who support them to the resources available.

It was important that the platform allowed space to educate young people about mental health issues and how they can combat them, helping to remove the stigma around mental health and encourage a culture of openness with young people.

The Solution

The Solution

We provided a solution that provides adaptable and varied content which enables us to engage with a wide age range (0-18), wrapped in a colourful platform that features a bright colour palette, playful fonts and animations.
