Compass Bloom Trainee Education Mental Health Practitioner (TEMHP) Romy Kale says she “can’t wait” to become a fully-fledged Education Mental Health Practitioner.
Romy who joined the team on its first day at the service’s induction event at the beginning of the year, said: “I can’t wait for the next year to see more young people, help support more groups, more families, more schools and just really see the benefit of our role and our team in the South Ribble and the wider Lancashire area. I’m so excited to see where we can take this.”
She said, “I was working as a teacher prior to this and I just noticed the fact that so many young people are struggling with their mental health and wellbeing and there wasn’t enough support out there to help them. I came across the EMHP role and that was what I wanted to do straight away, I applied and I was really lucky to get it.”
And she added: “It’s been a challenging road. We’ve had some difficult days and some amazing days as well. We’ve got through and we’re now nearly done with our course and so a couple more weeks and we’ll be finished; we’ll be qualified Education Mental Health Practitioners.”
