As part of the contract the charity will employee 9 Primary Mental Health Workers who will be located within each of the 6 Town Community Operating Groups, the Children’s Social Care Team, the Child Sexual Exploitation Team and the Youth Offending Team.

The service will build multi agency capacity and will identify the emotional wellbeing and mental health agenda as ‘Everybody’s Business’, improving emotional wellbeing and reducing crisis.
