Emotional Wellbeing Service

The Emotional Wellbeing Service is a community based service commissioned by East London Foundation Trust.  The service offers support to children and young people in Central Bedfordshire and Bedford Borough with mild to moderate mental health difficulties.

We employ a multi disciplinary team of clinicians from backgrounds such as clinical psychology, family therapy, social work and counselling, who offer short term support using evidence based programmes. The service offers group support for some presenting issues.

We work closely with the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) teams who support moderate to severe mental health difficulties, to ensure all children and young people are offered assessment and support by the most appropriate service.  Additionally, we work closely with many other local agencies and offer a signposting service when we feel support would be advisable from another agency, either at the time of referral or post assessment.

If you have concerns about the mental health or emotional wellbeing of any child or young person up to the age of 18, or if you have noticed a recent change in behaviour, please do not hesitate to contact us, whether you are a parent/carer or professional.

For a list of possible presenting issues as well as possible ways in which we can support you please download our service leaflet:
