Everybody’s Business A trainers package An e-learning package Department of Health & Department for Education jointly commission NCSS as a service improvement programme which helps strengthen mental health services for children and young people in England. It provides support and challenge to Targeted Mental Health in Schools pathfinder pilots and manages a range of national projects commissioned by DH and DCSF. Its core regional activity is undertaken in collaboration with Strategic Health Authorities, Government Offices and local providers.
Guidance and policy from the Department of Health (DH) and the Department for Children, Schools and Families (DCSF) – includes the role of universal and mainstream services in promoting children’s mental health. There is a consensus that non-mental health workers have a significant role to play. This includes: Providing initial assessment and early identification of difficulties (DH, 2004; DfES 2004) Identifying those who need help (HAS, 1995; DH, 2004; DfES, 2004) Offering advice and support to those with mild or minor problems (HAS, 1995; DfES, 2004)
Pursuing opportunities for mental health promotion and prevention (HAS, 1995; DfES, 2004) Having sufficient knowledge of specialist services to be able to refer on appropriately as necessary (DH, 2004; DfES, 2004) Advising or the providing therapeutic help that does not require intensive specialist training or onward referral (DH, 2004)
“Anyone working directly with children and families needs to ask themselves regularly “what can I do to improve the mental health and well being of this child?” The children and young people we spoke to are clear about who they will turn to when they need help. The fact that teachers are included in the “inner circle” suggests they are valued and trusted by many children and young people and therefore play a significant role in supporting mental health and psychological well being. So they need support and knowledge to do this effectively.” CAMHS Review, 2008
