Emotional Health and Wellbeing
Partners in Suffolk are working together to deliver the Children and Young People’s (CYP’s) Emotional Wellbeing Transformation Plan (EWB 2020). They are working to establish a joined-up, family focused response to all children, young people and families presenting with emotional, behavioural or mental health needs.
The plan has been developed with both NHS West Suffolk Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and NHS Ipswich and East Suffolk CCG, GPs, Suffolk County Council, charities, schools, young people, parents and carers and is based on Five Big Ideas and Ten Priorities which will be delivered over the next five years.
