The Emotionally Healthy Children and Young People project has been running for two years and is supported by a number of agencies, including CWP, Cheshire East Council, local schools, Eastern Cheshire CCG, NHS South Cheshire CCG and the charities Visyon and Just Drop In.
The project focuses on improving resilience across schools and aims to develop teaching staff to ensure they meet the mental health and wellbeing needs of their students.
The third phase of the Cheshire East Emotionally Healthy Children and Young People began in April 2019 with CWP as the lead provider. CWP work in close partnership with Visyon and Just Drop In to deliver the offer to all schools and settings, Local Authority Youth Provision, and Community Organisations Affiliated to Connected Communities.

Due to the on-going situation regarding the pandemic, the Emotionally Healthy Children and Young People’s Link Team consultation offer has been reviewed and based on conversations with colleagues the following changes have been made and will continue until further notice:
- Telephone consultations will be offered on a one to one basis
- Consultations will operate Monday to Friday 9am – 4pm on a pre-booked basis
- Bookings will be made and confirmed using the team email address firstname.lastname@example.org
- The paperwork accessed under the consultation tab below will need to be completed prior to consultation and forwarded securely to the team email address (above) at least 24 hrs prior to the consultation. There is also a leaflet explaining the consultation to parents.
- Schools will be responsible for obtaining parental consent to discuss the child or young person at consultation – if it is not possible to get a consent form signed by a parent or carer, the school will need to obtain verbal consent and record a date, time and method eg. Phone, email
We hope that offering a higher degree of flexibility will enable our service users to access support in a timely manner during this challenging time.
