We are fortunate to be part of a project within Brighton and Hove, whereby a Community CAMHs worker will be working alongside the school for a proportion of the week.
The focus of this project is to support parents, staff and pupils in recognising and supporting a range of anxiety and mental health based challenges. This will be done through a range of group based and training activities rather than ongoing 1-1 sessions that are currently offered through the CAMHs process.
There will be a variety of activities including:
- parent workshops on areas such as managing self harm and exam stress
- 1-1 parent appointments offering advice and support
- 1-1 pupil drop ins offering advice and support
- Pupil workshops on areas such as managing anxiety, dealing with change, understanding emotions and managing exam stress
Parent appointments can be offered on a Friday morning up until 12.00.
Workshop content and dates are to be finalised and will be advertised via the school website and parent mail.
Referrals for workshops and parent appointments can be made by pupils, parents and staff and should be directed to Jackie Lucas via firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have any further questions about the project, please contact Linsey McGill via email@example.com
