Mental Health Support in Education

15th April 2020

Many services and organisations have changed what they do as a result of COVID 19. Support for children and young people’s mental health and emotional wellbeing (formerly known as CAMHS) has also changed.

Please can you help us? We want to let as many parents, carers, children and young people know about this new web page as soon as possible:

www.justonenorfolk.nhs.uk/mentalhealth

This is now the single place to find out how to access mental health advice and support for 0 -25’s in Norfolk & Waveney. The key message is that you don’t need a referral, you can get in touch straight away for advice and support. If you need more specialist help, we will make sure you get to the right person.

Please share on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, mail outs etc. A big comms / social media push and shareable content will come next week, but we want families and young people to see this before the weekend if possible.

I’m pleased to report that our transformation work hasn’t paused. In fact, we’ve had to bring forward transformation plans to access help and work together differently to meet current needs, and we hope to have news in the next few weeks of an entirely new offer that will make a big difference for 11 to 25-year- olds.

In the meantime, thank you in advance for your support in sharing this information.
