SEND, Mental Health and Wellbeing

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope. (Romans 15:13)

At St. Edward’s, we are committed to supporting the health and wellbeing of our pupils and staff to ensure that the school is a community where everyone feels able to thrive. Positive mental wellbeing is essential if children and young people are to flourish and lead fulfilling lives.

Young People’s Mental Health Support Team (CAMHS Rochdale)

Heywood, Middleton  and Rochdale Young People’s Mental Health Support Team – Thrive in Education

We help young people, aged from four until their 18th birthday, experiencing low level emotional and behavioural difficulties, such as:

  • Worry
  • Low mood
  • Anger management
  • Low self-esteem and confidence

Our goal is to help you thrive in education and beyond, so you can reach your full potential.

We (Pennine Care) run the service in partnership with local charities Early Break, Your Trust, Place2Be and Youth in Mind (part of Tameside, Oldham and Glossop Mind).

Our team is currently based in 39 schools across the borough – and growing – and we work closely with your school staff and parents, to make sure you benefit from joined-up support.

We are available all year round, including school holidays.

You can be referred by your school mental health lead or link worker, if you are experiencing issues such as worry and low mood.

We will develop a package of support based on your individual needs.

This could include cognitive behavioural informed therapy (understanding the link between thoughts, feelings and behaviour), counselling, or other types of support, such as social prescription through sport, drama, music, or art programmes.

We can also help parents to understand their child’s anxiety and low mood, and offer guidance and training to school staff.
