Getting Help with Mental Health

This page is intended as a basic introduction to mental health services for parents and carers of children and young people with SEND.

A Parent carers’ guide to mental health services has been prepared by parents for parents.  You can download this guide HERE

In addition, information about mental health services in Hertfordshire is available on the mental health pages of the Hertfordshire SEND Local Offer website HERE and the Hertfordshire Children and Young People’s Mental Health Service Directory is available HERE.

Every local authority must, by law, have an online SEND Local Offer which covers education, social care and health services including mental health available to children and young people in Hertfordshire.

We know that in general as a parent navigating your way around mental health services is not easy to do as there are a number of different services and organisations involved.  The Parent Carer Information Pack is designed to help you with that.
