What is a Children's Wellbeing Practitioner (CWP)?

Children's Wellbeing Practitioners (CWPs) are trained to assess and support children and young people (CYP) with common mental health difficulties, particularly mild to moderate anxiety, depression and behavioural difficulties. They have completed a year of specific training and supervised experience to qualify for the role. They offer a range of low intensity interventions that are based on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and guided self-help. 

They aim to help CYP and their parents/carers in the self-management of their recovery. CWPs work within NHS services or third sector or private organisations which are commissioned by the NHS. If they are on our Register they have shown that they meet high standards of training and clinical work, and they work in a service that meets NHS expectations.
