Children and Young People's Mental Health


  • Open Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm

Choices offers support to children, young people up to the age of 17 and families in Haringey who are worried about their emotional wellbeing. If you are a young person you can request support for the team to see you for over a brief period of time where they will help you work out what services and support are available for you in Haringey. All parents/carers are welcome to contact CHOICES even if your child is not willing to meet with the team. Professionals concerned about a child/young person can also make a referral.

​Choices can meet you at various venues across the borough including Wood Green, Tottenham, Hornsey, Harringay and Finsbury Park. 

​Please note: Choices is not a crisis service - information on emergency or crisis services is available on the Choices website (external link) - scroll to the bottom of the page.
