Future in Mind
As part of our whole school approach to supporting children’s emotional and mental wellbeing we are currently working closely with our Primary Future in Mind Practitioner, Becky Price, to provide support to children who may be struggling with anxiety and low resilience.
Future in Mind is a National initiative from the Department of Health and NHS England and works alongside CAMHS to provide mental health services for children, young people and their families. NHS Wakefield Clinical Commissioning Group have been successful in securing funding to deliver the programme until 2020.
Children can be considered for referral into the programme by parents and teaching staff, initially the sessions are designed to offer children practical support and strategies to build resilience and coping mechanisms. Further support can be offered if it is felt this is needed but help can also be given to access support from other professionals.
