Education Mental Health Practitioners- Supporting with anxiety and behaviour

Education Mental Health Practitioners


Improving Mental Health Outcomes for Children and Young People

in Brent Harrow and Hillingdon



 The Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families; University College London and NHS have collaborated to co-create this early intervention initiative.

WHO ARE WE? A team of Education Mental Health Practitioners (EMHP), assigned to support children and young people (YP) at the earliest signs of mental health difficulties. Our aim is to improve mental health outcomes for children and YP by delivering evidence-based low intensity interventions as part of a health promotion strategy. Early intervention has been proven to reduce the likelihood of mental health difficulties emerging later in life.

WHAT DO WE DO?? We deliver up to eight 1:1 CBT based Guided Self Help (GSH) sessions to young people experiencing low mood and anxiety and to the parents of younger children with behavioural difficulties. We work in collaboration with the YP and their families to support them to reach their wellbeing goals. We help achieve this by equipping them with self-help coping strategies that can be used in difficult situations interfering with their life.

WHAT CAN WE OFFER? The GSH intervention method is designed to support YP to become specialists in their own mental health wellbeing and to build confidence and independence. CWPs provide the tools YP can use to manage any current emotional difficulties. In addition, achievable tasks are set to be completed outside of sessions, with the aim of meeting an agreed outcome.
