Emotional health and wellbeing (tier two)
The School Health Service continues to offer its emotional health and wellbeing service (text your school nurse, virtual drop-ins and packages of care) for young people of secondary school and college age. However, we are pleased to say we are now offering a targeted emotional health and wellbeing offer to a number of secondary schools.
This service is available to secondary-aged young people in the schools listed below. It is designed to support the emotional health and wellbeing of young people who are beginning to struggle with their mental health/emotional wellbeing but do not meet the threshold for support from more traditional mental health services such as CAMHS or whose needs are greater than can be met from our existing packages of care.
Young people accepted into the service will receive up to six sessions of tailored one-to-one support from a qualified nurse. The service is designed to work with difficulties such as anxiety/worry, low mood, stress, deliberate self-harm and poor self-esteem. This is not an exhaustive or comprehensive list and all referrals will be triaged and considered.
If you would like to make a referral, discuss a case or simply find out more please contact the School Health One Point on 0300 123 4062 or visit our website kentcht.nhs.uk/service/school-health-service-east-sussex/.
