The Primary Mental Health (PMH) Team does not work directly with young people and parents/carers. Instead the team works with ‘universal services’, such as GPs and school health teams and schools.
The team works with and supports practitioners working with children, young people and their families in relation to emotional health and wellbeing. The team provides training and consultation to empower and support practitioners to extend their range of skills and knowledge in mental health difficulties, to ensure that children and young people’s needs are met within the appropriate service.
The team members are multi-disciplinary, qualified professionals with experience of working with children and young people in the area of emotional/mental health. Their purpose is to:
Monday - Friday 9am - 5pm
The professionals that the team support are GPs, school health teams and schools. The team does not work directly with young people and parents/carers. The contact details for professionals only are:
