Early Help for Mental Health
Early Help for Mental Health (EH4MH) aims to build resilience in children and young people by tackling mental health issues before they become more serious. It uses a range of approaches, including face-to-face counselling, online support and self-help advice and guidance. EH4MH also offers comprehensive help to schools, offering training, advice and clinical supervision, and raising awareness of emotional health and wellbeing among the school workforce in order to help change the culture around mental health.
The EH4MH service is split into two elements:
- staff in all Devon schools have been supported to develop their knowledge of mental health conditions affecting young people and strategies for supporting children with early signs of mental and emotional stress;
- direct support, delivered by Young Devon and Xenzone, gives secondary school aged young people access to self-help tools, good information, online counselling and appropriate levels of support (online via KOOTH.com and face-to-face via Young Devon).
