Cambridgeshire Mental Health Liaison Worker

Year funded: 2017/2018
Academy/Organisation: Ormiston Families
Area of Focus: Wellbeing

Headspace works closely with schools in March, Chatteris and Whittlesey and surrounding villages who make referrals for children who may have mental health needs.

The headspace worker makes an initial assessment and decides on the most appropriate intervention(s). This may be short-term, equipping the school to support the child or onward referral to another service.
