Urgent, crisis or emergency referrals

We are unable to accept urgent or emergency referrals or queries. If you are concerned that there is a risk to the life of a child or young person call 999.

For contact information, including urgent or crisis support please visit the Berkshire Healthcare NHS Children, Young People and Families services website.

How the hub can help

We provide a central point of contact for young people, families, and professionals to access mental health services. The Emotional Wellbeing Hub provides free support and advice to:

  • Children and young people up to their 19 birthday and
  • Up to 25 for young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) 

Through the Emotional Wellbeing Hub we can:

  • Offer you advice and guidance.
  • Discuss your concerns / needs with us.
  • Provide onward referral/advice for local support services including Primary Mental Health Team 4 Youth (PMHT4Y), ARC Youth Counselling and Tellmi app - free online peer support.

Primary Mental Health Team 4 Youth (PMHT4Y)

The Primary Mental Health Team 4 Youth are our partners within NHS Berkshire Healthcare Foundation Trust, working in the same location as Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS). They are a small team who provide low intensity mental health support to children and young people. For example they may work with a young person who is struggling with worries and low mood through 4 to 8 support sessions.  

For children under the age of 11, intervention is typically focused on working with parents, as evidence shows this provides the best long-term results.
