Peaces is a team of clinically trained mental health professionals who believe in the integration fo mental health expertise into the education environment. Creating a gold standard or emotional development provision, with a layer of safeguarding around mal adaptive personality development.
Having worked directly with children’s mental health and emotional development for over 20 years, we are professionally equipped to fill the service gaps in the development of young people within schools. We aim to make mental health issues part of the school structure, to allow students to progress in a familiar environment.
We are here to provide a specialist school-based service focused on the improvement of students emotional development in a safe and considerate way, whilst supporting teachers as well as students.
As schools adapt to the increased pastoral demands on education, there has been a larger focus placed on mental health and the responsibility of schools for the mental wellbeing of students. We look to support schools by implementing a service pathway which allows us to place the best suited clinician to the young person’s needs.
Following a consultation with a member of staff who know the young person well, a one off assessment appointment would take place with the young person directly.
After this an assessment summary report will be provided and discussions will take place on the best next steps. This could result in an observation assessment, one-to-one consultation or group work. We will work to ensure we are confident that the most suitable method will be carried out to suit the child’s requirements.
