Our early intervention service provides wellbeing advice to students aged between 14 and 25 in secondary schools and colleges. Our Wellbeing Advisers are based within schools or colleges one day per week. They provide students with the essential practical tips, tools and skills they need to manage their wellbeing. Our Wellbeing Advice Service is delivered through one-to-one appointments as well as email and telephone support. Signposting to other services, including counselling, will also be provided where necessary. Whilst this is a targeted service for children and young people experiencing mental health difficulties, it is not targeted towards people with SEND, although they are also seen and supported by our Wellbeing Advisors.
