Emotional Health & Wellbeing Service

The team's role is to signpost, advise and support referrals to the wider emotional health and wellbeing services available for children, young people and families; from online self-management resources to specialist child and adolescent mental health services. The team work closely with the Early Help Hubs and the CAMH Single Point of Access (SPA). They can also help you assess the needs of children, young people and families and deliver training and consultation to support professionals develop their skills, knowledge and understanding of emotional health and wellbeing issues to more effectively and confidently deliver support. The team operate a duty system, where they offer telephone support to professionals from education settings (primary, secondary, colleges and special schools). They can also offer more in depth support, where they can visit staff at schools to provide consultation (with parent/carers consent) and training. This provision varies across the regions; where in Peterborough it is specific to secondary schools and colleges, but in Cambridgeshire it is focused on primary schools.
