Getting help at school from the Emotional Wellbeing Team
Who are we?
We are your school’s Emotional Wellbeing Team. Emotional Wellbeing Teams are a government initiative also known nationally as Mental Health Support Teams.
We know, from time to time, people need support with their emotional wellbeing and mental health, so we are here to help. We’re specially trained to share ideas about looking after your mental health, and to offer early help with emotional wellbeing and mental health difficulties. Getting the right support early can help prevent problems getting bigger, so you can enjoy school, home, time with families and friends, and other activities.
Who can we help?
We can work with all students by supporting your school to promote emotional wellbeing and mental health across the whole school community. We can work with you in groups or 1:1 sessions to support you with more specific difficulties.
How we can help
There’s a number of ways we can support you, including:
- Whole school activities and workshops to promote emotional wellbeing and increase your understanding of how to take care of your mental health
- Smaller group and 1:1 sessions for young people with difficulties such as anxiety, exam stress, problems with sleep, and low mood.
