Mission Statement

Our Mission

Our mission is to improve mental well-being and life chances of families by improving the social, emotional, and mental health of young people.

Our Vision

Our vision is that fewer young people experience poor mental health, so that they can engage in education to fulfil their potential as a successful member of their community.

The Challenges

More than 400,000 children and young people a month are being treated for mental health problems – the highest number on record – prompting warnings of an unprecedented crisis in the wellbeing of under-18s.

Experts say Covid-19 has seriously exacerbated problems such as anxiety, depression and self-harm among school-age children and that the “relentless and unsustainable” ongoing rise in their need for help could overwhelm already stretched NHS services.

  • Mental health is at crisis point in schools (1)
  • Teachers across the UK are showing signs of depression (2)
  • Growing crisis of mental ill-health in schools (3)
  • Vulnerable children are not accessing any education (4)
  • Record 420,000 children a month in England treated for mental health problems (5)

Our Core Aims

The Child Therapy Service CIC aims to create a platform of services that supports any young person experiencing emotional ill-health.

We aim to do this by offering instant access to evidence-based effective emotional health modalities for the child, family, healthcare, and education professional.  Facilitating collaboration and creating opportunities of empowerment.

In addition to having a positive impact on the lives of young people, the Child Therapy Service CIC will also have a wider impact on the lives of families and professionals, including:

  • Increased school attendance and academic progress for the child
  • Reduced one-to-one staff provision in schools
  • Improved well-being of staff and increased retention
  • Improved well-being of the family unit
  • Reduced the need for flexi-timetables
