Paediatric CUES 

An innovative psycho-education programme to improve mental health resources for children with chronic physical illnesses

Maudsley Charity funding enables the project to develop a new interactive website and clinic-based ‘drop-in centre’ providing access to innovative psycho-education that teaches fundamental skills in emotional literacy and wellbeing, alongside practical cognitive strategies and behavioural techniques to help manage difficulties. 

This project is part of the Cues-ED programme,  developed as a result of direct feedback from children in Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS). This has enabled clinicians to develop a psycho-education package for children about mental health – reaching large numbers by delivering within schools to whole classes and encouraging children to learn the skills that can help build their resilience from an early age.
