***If you’re a child or young person in a Mental Health Crisis***
The NHS and our local hospitals are really busy at the moment, so if you’re experiencing a mental health crisis, the quickest way to get help at any time of the day or night is to call the freephone number: 0800 6444 101, or call NHS 111 and select option 2 for mental health services.
In the case of serious illness or injury, dial 999 for emergency services.
***Schools and Families Advice Line (SFAL)***
The ‘Schools and Families Advice Line’ (SFAL) is a new service established to provide emotional wellbeing advice and early help to children and young people, school staff and families during the COVID-19 pandemic. It can be really worrying when you, or someone you know is going through a difficult time. If you feel this service could help, please call our Single Point of Access (SPA) who will take your details before passing them onto our call back service.
Telephone: 0300 777 0707

*****WRITTEN LOCKDOWN AUGUST 2020****
My name is Joanna Tebbutt and I am the 'Mental Health and Well-Being' Lead at Tewin Cowper School. Mental Health and Well-Being is one of our top priorities at Tewin Cowper and even more so during this pandemic. We have been doing some research and below you will find some Pings we have sent out with helpful links to webinars you can sign up to, books for adults and children and just a few general ideas.
I hope these are of help to you.
Take care and stay safe,
