Mental Health & Well-Being

Mental Health Matters

Are you concerned about your own or someone else's Mental Health ?

Unsure where to go or what to do?

In light of the current situation regarding Coronavirus and with many services being forced to close or find other ways of offering their services, please see information received from the local team responsible for helping and supporting young people.

Ongoing Support from the Mental Health Support Team for Students - Mansfield and Ashfield

We just wanted to email schools with an update as to how the MHST will continue to offer support to schools in the event of school closures.

We have taken the decision, that as of next week (23/03/2020) we will be accepting self-referrals from children and young people attending our MHST schools for early intervention work via CAMHS SPA in order for them to be able to access telephone assessment and ongoing phone support from the MHST over the coming weeks. We will be putting in additional staff into the CAMHS SPA from our team to support this. Our hope is to be able to provide online resources and self help material that the team can work through over the phone.

We will liaise with the schools respective mental health leads and inform them of any young people who refer in. Whilst this is not a usual way for us to operate, and we still feel that it is important for mental health leads to be involved, we feel that in these uncertain times, if as a service we can be flexible and continue to support children in our schools to stay well then we want to be part of that offer

Please ask those individuals/parents/carers who this may be of help too, to contact CAMHS SPA on 0115 8542299 or via the online portal
