The Garden

Wellbeing and Mental Health in Schools Project

   Hi, my name’s Elise Marriott

I am a Clinical Psychologist working in the CAMHS Disability team at the Hackney Ark. I am working in The Garden as part of a pilot project in Hackney called Wellbeing and Mental Health in Schools (WAMHS). The project aims to improve support around mental health and wellbeing for children and young people in schools, colleges and specialist and alternative provision settings in City & Hackney. This is for one day a week (Fridays) for around 1 year.

The main projects I will be working on will be:

  • helping teaching staff to think about and support their pupil’s mental health and well-being
  • supporting staff well-being
  • building stronger links between CAMHS and The Garden (including supporting families with CAMHS referrals
  • attending regular planning meetings at The Garden to provide a mental health perspective around the children’s needs

If you would like further information please contact Pat Quigley or myself.
