Essex Progressions

We aim to support young adults to thrive in the community upon leaving Emotional Health & Wellbeing Services.

About this project

Progressions is a pilot service that aims to test, understand, deliver and evaluate the current transitions needs of CYP and inform future design and service provisions for young people with mental health needs.

The service will ensure ongoing transition support, provide needs led interventions to support young adults transitioning from EWMHS to have a mental health follow-up service offer and provide a fast-track communication response, with therapeutic input for their mental health/wellbeing if required.

We aim to support young adults who have been receiving a service from the commissioned EWMH service and are preparing to leave, this includes those who:

Our Objectives

Therapeutic interventions will be delivered by multi-skilled professionals including mental health clinicians that will work with EWMHS to assist in developing a management plan. We will offer regular case discussion meetings with professionals from all agencies involved with the young adult to plan for care and needs, this will include clinical follow-up and limited intervention.

Transition champions will support the plan and navigation of the system for the young adult to help develop a more young-people friendly environment. We will assist both with transition from EWMHS and work with young adults coming into adult mental health services for the first time.

Young people also want to be involved and support each other and feel that having someone they can talk to who has similar experiences can help as well as supporting others gives you a sense of achievement. As part of the “test and learn” pilot, Peer Mentoring will be a good way to continue to validate and support young people.
