Support for education

Do you need support?

Our children and young people are facing greater psychological health and wellbeing issues, so too are the staff in schools, colleges and training providers.

Our Aquarius Life service seeks to provide education providers with tools to support staff and student wellbeing.

Aquarius Life can help you to help your staff and students to provide a more positive working environment.

109,613 children were turned away by CAMHS between 2015 and 2017. This means 150 pupils a day are not getting the support they need. In some cases, pupils had to wait up to 18 months to be treated.

How it works

We arrange an initial meeting to discuss the issues that are presenting themselves. Collaboratively, we produce a basic assessment of needs.

Once we have developed an assessment of needs, we will produce a recommendation for the education provider to look at. In most cases, this will cover various options at a range of price points.

Once a decision has been made on the level of support, we would meet to produce a service level agreement together. We would then produce an implementation plan and begin service delivery.

Our Aquarius Life service seeks to provide education providers with tools to support staff and student wellbeing.

Nearly two thirds of teachers say they are not confident that they or their school would be able to get timely support from expert services such as CAMHS for pupils experiencing mental ill health.
