Working with schools to improve young people’s mental health and well being

09 Oct 2019
NAPC Primary Care Networks in Action Theatre

This session will explore the different ways in which two primary care homes are working in close partnership with their local community trusts and schools to support pupils with mental health problems. The South Coast Medical Group in Dorset runs GP sessions in local schools to help combat high levels of mental health problems among young people. Team Winsford (Winsford Care Community) in Cheshire funds a project which involves training education staff to spot mental health problems and make appropriate referrals.
