Emotional Health and Wellbeing Service

Emotional Health is about how we think and feel.  It is about our sense of wellbeing, our ability to cope with life events and how we acknowledge our own emotions as well as those of others.

The website has been created for parents and carers of children and young people who are experiencing emotional health and wellbeing difficulties. There are various headed tiles and by clicking on these you will find useful information, strategies and advice.  To promote ongoing growing, learning and development there is information on a range of topics that will enhance childhood skills.

Support is important, however if you think you need professional support for your child / young person’s emotional health and wellbeing – there are various professionals who can help or who can make a referral for specialist help.
