Mental health is a serious risk to children in, or on the edge of care. Children in care are currently at significant risk of mental ill-health and traditionally have less success in education systems than their peers. Because of this, they are far less likely to go on to further education and employment.
We established a local, four-bed children’s home which integrated health, care and education delivery. It provided residential support to young people in, or on the edge of care, with high levels of mental ill health. Young people were supported to continue attending their current school and were supported by a range of services appropriate to their needs, including Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS), Suffolk Connect, psychologists, and counselling services.
