The new NHS funding will be used to roll out specialist teams in 40 Croydon primary, secondary and SEN schools and further education colleges, who will lead mental health programmes and training for children and young people, their families and teachers. This will include at least eight new emotional wellbeing practitioners to deliver support to children and young people, with a focus on helping them build their emotional resilience through improving inclusion, tackling bullying, reducing youth violence and dealing with other difficulties they may face.
Parents will have the opportunity to practise conversations that encourage better mental health and wellbeing, while teachers and support workers will also be trained to recognise, support and signpost or refer pupils to specialist child and adolescent mental health services (CAMHS).
