We have funded two additional Emotional Health and Wellbeing Practitioner (EHWP) posts in the Emotional Health and Wellbeing Team, specifically to build capacity in Fenland and East Cambridgeshire and provide an increased level of support, guidance and training for schools across the area.
The team operates a duty system, offering email and telephone support to professionals from education settings (primary, secondary, colleges and special schools). Part of the EHWP’s role is to support professional to ‘system navigate’ around the complex network of support available for children and young people with emotional and mental health needs. They work with professionals to signpost, advise and support referrals to the wider emotional health and wellbeing services. The team works closely with the Early Help Hubs and the CAMH Single Point of Access (SPA).
Professionals can email the duty email and request a call back if they would like to discuss either a child’s emotional wellbeing (as was previously offered through duty telephone contact) or they can now ask for a staff support type call. For further information about support for parents/carers and young people to access please see the leaflet on the link below.
