About me

I work as part of the Gateshead Healthy Schools Programme team as a Children and Young People's Mental Health Liaison Worker. 

Part of my role is to work with and support schools around identifying and developing strategies in response to the emotional health and wellbeing needs of their children and young people.  Supporting staff and engaging with key individuals within schools to enable the use and delivery of proactive interventions. 

I work closely with joint leads Kirk Green and Don Sweeney.  I am based within the Emotional Wellbeing Team and aim to provide resources, raise awareness around a variety of mental health issues.

Please feel free to get in touch if you have any ideas or questions...
