Specialist Counselling Service for Children and Young People
NEW: Specialist Counselling Service for children and young people (Southend)
As part of the response to Covid-19, and the increase in demand for mental health support for our children and young people, a new service has recently been commissioned to support children and young people aged 5-18 years (or up to 25 if in receipt of an Education, Health and Care Plan). Kids Inspire, Open Door and South East and Central Essex Mind are a partnership to deliver a specialist early intervention service for children and young people with emerging mental health issues.
Children and young people can be referred to this service by professionals, schools, teachers, family members (with consent from child or young person) and without going via a GP. The three organisations will see children and young people with any of the following issues:
- low level depression
- low mood
- worries and concerns arising from Covid-19
