Support for Emotional Wellbeing
Resources for Children and Young People
School Health Service
The School Health Service (or sometimes known as School Nursing) are a team of NHS counsellors who work with children and their families to support emotional wellbeing. School professionals or parents can refer into the service for their child/young person.
These sessions can help a young person to gain understanding and to develop strategies to help them feel better. For primary school-aged children, the service can offer the child six sessions with a counsellor, or offer parents six weekly sessions with advice on practical, easy to use strategies to support children.
YANA (You Are Not Alone)
YANA aims to help children and young adults develop resilience and emotional wellbeing through a coaching approach. The project raises awareness of mental health, develops understanding of what that looks like for the individual, and explores what they can do themselves and where they can go for further support. The YANA project offers online wellbeing and emotional resilience workshops as well as tailored 1:1 sessions for children.
