Mental health can be described as someone’s overall psychological and emotional wellbeing. A mental health problem is when a situation or problem affects the way someone thinks and feels and leads to them finding it hard to cope with family life, school or the wider world. Often, it occurs if someone experiences something traumatic, such as bereavement, bullying or abuse, but sometimes it can happen without these triggers.
When a child or young person is experiencing difficulties, previously they may have been supported by Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS). However, after significant consultation around services across Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin, the views of children, young people and their families as well as professionals has directly informed the design of the new 0 - 25 Emotional Health & Wellbeing Service (EHWBS).
