Emotional wellbeing and mental health

The Community Nursing for Children’s Emotional Wellbeing and Mental Health service provides support to children and young people aged 4 to18 years who are in a Surrey state school and are experiencing mild to moderate emotional or mental health difficulties.

Referrals to the service are usually made through your school nurse, school and health visitor. Each referral is considered on an individual basis and the best support for the child or young person will be decided. This might involve signposting to services from different agencies according to your child’s specific difficulty or short term therapeutic intervention.
We can help with a wide range of emotional, behavioural and physical symptoms and difficulties, including:

  • ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder)
  • Anger
  • Anxiety disorders
  • ASD (autistic spectrum disorder)
  • Behaviour
  • Bereavement
  • DSH (deliberate self harm)
  • Eating issues
  • Low Mood
  • Relationships
  • School Issues
  • Self Esteem
  • Sleep problems.

We will meet with you in locations that best suit you and your child, which can be in school, a clinic or home-based.

The Community Nursing for Children’s Emotional Wellbeing and Mental Health role also aims to empower the 0-19 teams (school nurses and health visitors) and schools to develop expertise in early identification of mental health needs and improve access to appropriate intervention, by providing consultation and training.
