Tameside & Glossop Emotional Wellbeing, Mental Health and Early Help Access Point (EHAP)

A new children’s mental health referral pathway via Multi Agency Request for Service Pathway (MARS)

The new multi-agency referral pathway has been designed as a central referral point for all services that support families, including, children’s mental health referrals across Tameside & Glossop, for children and young people up to 18 years old.  Access to good quality information from a variety of agencies will enable joined up working and information sharing to ensure that the child receives the most appropriate support so that their needs are best met at the point of referral. Importantly families will experience one referral with a support plan being put in place following this referral.
Once a referral is received at EHAP the referral will be triaged by a mental health practitioner and the most appropriate service will be identified to best meet the needs of the young person.

Getting advice and getting help:  There are lots of organisations that offer mental health support locally. You might need different types of support at different times in your life.
