Local health providers, in Nottingham, have set up the #NottinghamYouveBeenMissed campaign to help alleviate anxieties children and parents have about going back to school this September.
Targeted CAMHS (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service), Mental Health Support Teams (MHST) and the Educational Psychology Service in Nottingham city are working together to deliver the campaign. CAMHS has set up a YouTube channel, posting weekly podcasts that explore the reasons why children might be feeling anxious and how to overcome these concerns. The service is also running events across the city enabling children to socialise with others in preparation for going back to the classroom.
Parents worried about their child returning to school can find out more about local mental health support available by visiting the You've Been Missed web page on the Ask Lion directory or calling the telephone support line on 0115 876 4700.
