Primary Mental Health Service
The Primary Mental Health service gives general advice, guidance, consultation and group training for professionals who work with children and young people who may be displaying emerging mental health/ emotional wellbeing signs and symptoms. The service works with professionals to put in place plans to manage issues and stop them becoming more serious. Contact the Rise Navigation Hub for a telephone consultation on 0300 200 20 21 or to book a face to face consultationcall the Primary Mental Health Team on 02476 961 476.
At this stage, we can discuss a child or young person anonymously. Where appropriate, general advice and guidance may lead to a formal referral to the Primary Mental health Service or other mental health services.
For more focused work regarding a specific child or young person presenting with mental health difficulties, we can provide consultation work with you, on a professional to professional basis.
In the consultation our Primary Mental Health Worker will use a solution-focused approach to problem solving. We aim to encourage early intervention and prevention by aiding the professionals working directly with the family.
Following a consultation with our Primary Mental Health Worker, you will have clear a plan in place for the next course of action. The aim of our consultations is to better equip professionals to recognise and prevent mental issues developing and, when necessary, manage and reduce existing issues. To do this we work closely with the professional, building a library of resources which can then be implemented to improve the mental health and emotional well-being of the child or young person.
In order to access a consultation with one of our team you are required to submit a referral to the Rise Navigation Hub.
In Coventry our team offer a session in each of the eight family hubs on a monthly basis. The purpose of this is to provide consultation and support to hub workers and increase their understanding of the mental health and emotional wellbeing needs of the young people who they work with.
