Through early intervention, fewer pupils could be placed in a higher need category. E-ACT’s mental Health hubs support children with social, emotional and mental health needs for this reason.
E-ACT’s first mental health hub, Launchpad, was launched in 2019 to offer 16-week specialist programmes for up to 12 children. Open to all E-ACT pupils in the Bristol area, the Launchpad supports children back to a mainstream classroom.
Plans are already in place to set up mental health hubs across the trust.
