Mental Health and Wellbeing Early Intervetion Services

We offer specialised early intervention support to help improve mental health, wellbeing and resilience in children and young people.

Every day we hear more and more sad and terrifying figures about the number of children and young people developing or experiencing low resilience, poor self-esteem, emotional wellbeing and mental health problems. Research in the UK informs us that at least 1 in 10 children and young people have a diagnosable mental health problem, this has an impact on future opportunities, exam results, school attendance, relationships, economic input and self-worth. Not taking action or continuing with a approach to mental health problems will only led to a higher number of children and young people needing support.

Developing Resilience and Wellbeing in Children and Young People

We offer a range of interventions created and designed to improve resilience and support individuals to improve wellbeing by raising their self-awareness, improving their communication and interpersonal skills and developing their positive thinking skills.

Working collaboratively with children and young people enables us to build a clear understanding of the difficulties they face in overcoming their internal barriers and accessing support. This knowledge has enabled us to ensure that our interventions are accessible and available in school and community. We offer one to one sessions, small group sessions and larger workshops for children and young people.

We know children and young people need strategies that work and that enable them to help themselves improve wellbeing. All our interventions are designed to do exactly that. Children and young people accessing our support are empowered and feel confident and able to continue using strategies they have learned, even long after they have completed our interventions.

Parents Wellbeing Support

With an increase in the number of children and young people experiencing mental health problems we know that many parents feel confused and frustrated that there is not something more they can do so to support their child. We have designed our support for parents to help them develop skills and feel confident to better support their children to develop resilience and emotional health. We provide workshop sessions or coaching sessions to support parent learn strategies that support their child who may be experiencing mental health problems.

Evaluation and Monitoring

We use a range of before and after measures to evaluate our support services. This gives us an opportunity to understand the progress the people we support have made. All our interventions are measured for their effectiveness, this helps us continue to ensure positive outcomes for children and young people. We use these measurements to provide impact reports for our funders and commissioners as well as monitoring quality and continuing to innovate our services.
