With Oxleas' help, I feel calmer and more positive

Patient stories: Katy 2015

When teenager Katy was diagnosed with alopecia she was referred to her school
nurse who helped her come to terms with this distressing news.

Katy, 13, was grateful for the support and happy to engage. As underlying anger and behaviour issues were identified, Katy was also cared for by our child and adolescent mental health services. Katy is now feeling much calmer and more positive.

HeadScape, our self-help and referral website for young people struggling with mental
health issues, means that young people like Katy can get the information and support they need to stay well more easily.
