Thurrock’s Positive Pathway programme has enabled children & young people using local mental health services to access personalised care and a personal health budget where needed.
This short film describes how Joe was able to receive a Personal Health Budget and, working with Thurrock mental health services, accessed music tuition.
The impact of this activity was a boost in confidence and Joe feeling much more relaxed.
