We work closely with YPAS Liverpool, who offer a number of services for young people in Liverpool, such as counselling, anger awareness, and daily drop in sessions.
They now offer the Primary Care Liaison Service for Children & Young People, which is an early intervention service that aims to give CYP, who may not have received any help before, access to mental health and emotional wellbeing support, early on, in a way that is convenient.
The service can be offered in GP surgeries, YPAS hubs and via digital platform Zoom.
The YPAS team of Primary Care Wellbeing Practitioners are qualified to provide low level CBT based interventions as well as advice & guidance (IAG). They will also provide liaison between services and ensure that CYP and families are supported throughout this process.
The PCL supports children, young people and their families from 0-25 years old. Practitioners will support parents of primary school aged children and under.
The YPAS Primary Care Liaison Practitioners can offer support for a variety of difficulties, such as:
- Worries and anxiety
- Low mood and depression
- Problems with sleep
- Feelings of panic
- Understanding emotions
- Managing stress
- Parenting Intervention working with a child’s Anxiety/Behaviour
