Children’s Wellbeing Practitioners (CWPs) – Sites Now Recruiting

As part of a new CYP IAPT initiative, Children’s Wellbeing Practitioners (CWPs)  will be trained over the course of a year to offer brief, focused evidence- based interventions for anxiety, low mood and self-harm, and behavioural problems (under close supervision) to young people who wouldn’t otherwise reach thresholds for CAMHS.
