I work at a school

If you work at a school and you are concerned about the mental health or wellbeing of a student you can contact us for advice and support. You may be able to access one of our support services for the student. We help with things like worries about moving from primary school to secondary school, bullying, low mood, drug and alcohol worries, emotions, family problems, anxiety and anger. For more information you can email us on enquiries@mnessexmind.org or call between 9am and 5pm, Monday to Friday, on 01206 764600 to find out more about any of the services below and how you can refer into them.

Below is some information about some of the services we have to help children and young people.

One to One support for 10 to 19 year olds & support for pupils moving from primary school to secondary school

If you are looking for free one to one support for a young person aged 10-19 or for support for a child moving from primary school to secondary school you will need to visit the North East London Foundation Trust website for referral details.

Private Counselling

We offer private counselling for children aged 5-18 years, for more information please visit the Children and Young People’s Private Counselling page on our website.

Advocacy

We can also help some young people with advocacy. Advocacy is supporting someone to be able to talk about their views and worries, get information, defend their rights and talk about choices and options. Advocacy is for those who are already being helped by the Emotional Wellbeing Mental Health Service which used to be called CAMHS.
It can be provided for young people who are either in the community or on informal section as an inpatient. An advocate will support the young person in meetings and help them to have their voice heard in planning care and support. This service is available across Essex. Please call us between 9am and 5pm, Monday to Friday, for information on how to get support from this service.

Training for teaching and non-teaching staff

We can also offer training for staff to raise awareness of mental health and emotional wellbeing and how to handle some of those tough conversations when they happen. Visit the education and training pages of our website to find out more.
