Emotional Wellbeing Strategy launched for Mental Health Awareness Week
Sefton Council has launched the Children and Young People’s Emotional Wellbeing Strategy as part of Mental Health Awareness Week.
The Strategy has been developed by the Sefton Emotional Health and Wellbeing Board.
The strategy focuses on increasing access, building resilience and early identification of the mental health and wellbeing of children and adolescents through schools, school-based interventions and partnership working between healthcare, education and the community/voluntary sector.
Councillor John Joseph Kelly, Cabinet Member for Children’s Social Care said,
“This is an important strategy, which sets out our intentions for the next 5 years to make sure that children and young people in Sefton grow up heard, happy, healthy and achieving.”
Councillor Paul Cummins, Cabinet Member for Adult Social Care added,
“It is a priority for all organisations in Sefton that children have positive emotional wellbeing and mental health, and this strategy will make sure that we are all working together towards this goal.”
The strategy has been developed by Sefton Council, South Sefton Clinical Commissioning Group, Southport and Formby Clinical Commissioning Group, Sefton CVS, Alder Hey Hospital and members of the Sefton Emotional Health and Wellbeing Board, in conjunction with children and young people in Sefton.
