Emotional Wellbeing & Mental Health Children, Young People and Family Health Services Cardiff and Vale University Health Board



Aims & Objectives


Previously emotional wellbeing services for young people were delivered by Cwm Taf University Health Board. Primary Mental Health and SCAMHS repatriated to Cardiff and Vale University Health Board in 2016 and 2019 respectively.


Our objective is to provide an integrated children and young people’s emotional wellbeing and mental health service, with a single point of access and no wrong door approach


All services now fall under the Emotional Wellbeing & Mental Health care group, which can be accessed through making a request for support to the Single Point of Access, School In-Reach or an Early Help practitioner.


We are now in the process of communicating our offer to children and young people across Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan.
