The Behavioural and Emotional Health Team at Nottingham CityCare is there to help families identify and access the support services available for children and young people with behavioural, emotional or mental health needs.
This support is provided as part of the Nottingham City ‘pathway’ for children and young people where there are concerns about their behaviour, emotional wellbeing or mental health, or where there is a possibility that they may have autism spectrum disorder (ASD) or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
The pathway offers holistic and individualised care by drawing together the work of services and professionals from across Nottingham City including health, social care, education, youth and play, and voluntary sector services.
Together, they aim to deliver a seamless service which improves the lives of young people and their families. The teams will work alongside mental health services to ensure children and young people receive the most appropriate support at the earliest opportunity. They will also ensure specialist assessment or support is provided as needed, by the most appropriate service or services.
Young people who join this pathway will be:
- Registered with a GP in Nottingham City
- Aged 0 to 18 years old (or up to 24 if the young person has an education, health and care plan (EHCP)).
