50% of mental health problems are
established by the age of 14

Mental health problems affect about 1 in 10 children and young people. They include depression, anxiety and conduct disorder, and are often a direct response to what is happening in their lives.

Evidence shows that across the UK, mental health issues in children are increasing while child wellbeing is deteriorating. Young people today have to navigate a complex and ever-changing world, facing challenges and pressures in numerous aspects of their life.

Our Children & Young Peoples Services

Following the outcome of the Green Paper for Transforming children and young people’s mental health, we introduced Mental Health Support Team’s in 44 Westminster Schools. The service is delivered collaboratively between NHS England and the Department of Education.

In schools, we offer:

  • Evidence based 1:1 and group interventions for children, young people and parents/guardians in primary and secondary schools delivered by Mental Health Practitioners (EMHPs/CWPs) and an Assistant Psychologist.
  • A whole school approach to mental health in schools, which is a wider programme of psychoeducational support for young people, parents/carers, and teachers.

Other services:

  • Our Youth Workers deliver sessions in youth clubs, where they support young people who don’t feel able to disclose issues in school, but who access local youth clubs.
  • We support families with children who have SEND needs (0-19 years old) with anything related to the health, education, and overall wellbeing of their child.
