E-ACT’s mental health hubs provide support to pupils with social, emotional and mental health needs. By taking a proactive approach through early intervention, the number of pupils being placed in a higher need category is significantly reduced.
E-ACT’s first mental health hub, Launchpad, was introduced in 2019 offering 16-week specialist programmes for up to 12 pupils at a time. Based at Hareclive E-ACT Academy in Bristol but open to all E-ACT pupils in the Bristol area, the Launchpad helps children find their way back towards a mainstream classroom and fulfilling their potential.
Plans are already in place to set up mental health hubs across the trust.
