Welcoming our Educational Mental Health Practitioners

Published on: February 25, 2020

Following the contract award to deliver the North East Lincolnshire Mental Health Support Teams, our new team of Educational Mental Health Practitioners have completed their first week with Compass.

After four days at university the team had a chance to reflect, during a productive day together on 21 February at our Grimsby base in the Alexandra Dock Business Centre.

Our new colleagues learned a bit more about Compass and each other with a day that included fun team building games and activities.

I am so thrilled to be a part of this. I realise it will be hard work and there will be many challenges to overcome, but you made it clear that we are fully supported by Compass, working together throughout the learning journey.

I feel extremely motivated in return for the consideration Compass is giving to our wellbeing. I’m looking forward to meeting our future supervisors and getting stuck in! I felt it was one of the nicest and most restorative induction / introductions to anything I have experienced. I walked away feeling I really was part of something special and not just feeling I had started a new job.

The team are continuing their course this week and will be coming together again this Friday to learn more about the role of the Mental Health Support Teams, nationally, locally and within Compass.
