New Emotional Wellbeing Gateway launched online to support professionals
Published on 8 November 2017 by Sarah Dunne
A new Emotional Wellbeing Gateway is now available to assist professionals concerned about the emotional wellbeing of a child or young person, and who are looking for information, advice and local support.
The new gateway is funded by the Children and Young People’s Emotional Wellbeing 2020 Plan, which is part of a five-year plan focused on transforming services that supports emotional, behavioural, and mental health needs of all children and young people in East and West Suffolk.
The information available on the new Emotional Wellbeing Gateway has been co-produced with the Suffolk Parent Carer Network, and includes:
Information about emotional wellbeing and mental health support.
Practical advice for parents and carers concerned about their child’s mental health.
Local services to support children, young people, and families.
Suffolk County Council’s Suffolk InfoLink website (a directory of community organisations and family support services) is the home for the new Emotional Wellbeing Gateway. Over the coming weeks the site will be available in a beta development stage to encourage users to provide feedback that will be used to make improvements to the website.
