Be U Support

Be U Support

Our Nottinghamshire Service

Be U Notts is a free, accessible and convenient mental health and emotional wellbeing support service for people between 0-25 years of age and their parent and carers.

The service provides early interventions for children and young people experiencing mild to moderate mental health and emotional wellbeing needs.

Our goal is to facilitate equal access to mental health and emotional wellbeing support for children and young people, in a friendly, non-judgmental and supportive environment.

Since April 2022, Be U is available for people living in Nottingham City and Nottinghamshire County, except Bassetlaw,  where support is delivered by NottAlone.

Be U Notts is commissioned by NHS Nottingham and Nottinghamshire Clinical Commissioning Group and delivered by ABL and its local partners, with the support of NottAlone.

Our Mission

To encourage the mental and emotional wellbeing of children and young people through accessible, inclusive and non-judgmental early support.

Getting Advice, Getting Help

Be U is delivered in line with the Thrive Model, which means we focus on services that facilitate people ‘Getting Advice’ and ‘Getting Help’ support.

These services are FREE of charge, and include the following interventions:


When children and young people, and their parent or carers are in need of ‘Getting More Help’ or ‘Getting Risk Support’, our team will signpost or refer them to alternative support services.

Through a system of seamless pathways, users with ‘Getting More Help’ needs will be connected to local mental health and wellbeing specialist providers.

When children or young people are going through a mental health crisis, are self-harming or the there is risk of suicide, their ‘Getting Risk Support’ needs will be addressed by signposting or referring them to urgent mental health support services.
