The Emotional Health and Wellbeing (EHWB) Team is available to provide support, guidance and training for schools and colleges across the area.
The team operates a duty system, offering telephone support to education staff. Part of the EHWB Practitioner’s role is to support professionals 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 EHWB services. The team work closely with the Early Help Hubs and the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Single Point of Access.
The team can offer more in-depth support by visiting staff at schools. They can provide consultation and training to support staff develop their skills and understanding of emotional health and wellbeing issues. They also now provide staff wellbeing support sessions to education settings.
