North East Lincs (Compass GO…)

Compass GO.. (Mental Health Support Team) works with children, young people, families, schools and colleges in North East Lincolnshire. We provide support, help and advice for pupils, students and schools for issues related to mental health and wellbeing.

Our work with schools and colleges includes providing advice, information and support to staff in promoting mental health and wellbeing. We also plan mental health awareness and promotion activities and events for students, including group work, assemblies and campaigns. For a full list of the schools and colleges we work directly with click here. We also work with children and young people in other settings, for example those who are educated at home or excluded from school.

We are a small team of Education Mental Health Practitioners and Supervising Practitioners from a range of health and education backgrounds who have undertaken specialist training. We are here to support young people aged 5 to 18 (or up to 25 years old if you have special educational needs or disabilities) to lead happier, mentally healthier lives.

How the service can help you

Our service is free and confidential and support is voluntary – we are here to help.

Our team can provide support face to face, by phone or video if you need help with managing your mental health or emotional wellbeing. So for example, you could come to us for help:

  • Because you feel anxious about school, exams or something that is happening at home or with friends.
  • Because you are experiencing bullying and you need help to deal with the way this is affecting you.
  • Because you feel depressed or low and you need help to understand why this is happening and what you can do to cope with these feelings until they go away.
  • Because you self-harm and you would like help to find different ways to cope with your emotions.
  • Because you have eating problems like binge eating or dieting that is getting in the way of you leading a full and healthy life.
  • Because sometimes your behaviour causes problems for you or other people and you would like help to manage this better.
  • Because you struggle to control feelings of anger and this hurts you or other people.

You can get in touch with us about any mental health concern you have and we will either agree a plan with you or support you to get the right help at the right time.

The support we offer usually involves meeting face to face or talking on the phone or via video; we use talking therapies designed to help you cope with and understand your issues in a way that is as unique as you are. We may also suggest useful things you and those close to you, such as family and teachers, can do to support you at home or in school, but this is something we would talk to you about first.

How you can access the service

You can speak to someone from Compass GO… by ringing us on 01472 494250 we are here Monday – Thursday 9am to 5pm and Friday 9am to 4.30pm. Because our work is planned around schools and colleges we don’t work on weekends and bank holidays, but we are still here during school holidays.

If you or someone who is concerned about your mental health or emotional wellbeing contacts us we will ask a few questions, talk about the things which are worrying you and agree a plan or support you to get the help you need.

We usually offer appointments between 9am and 4.00pm Monday to Friday but if these times don’t suit you, we will arrange something at a time that does – just let us know.

If you need urgent help because you are at risk of harm to yourself or someone else because of your mental health you can contact Young Minds Matter 24 hours a day 7 days a week on 01472 256256 option 3 or in an emergency call 999.
