EPfirst: Mental Health Assessment and Intervention Approach

Step 1: Referral

Information provided in the EPfirst referral form.


Step 2: Consultation


The referral will be discussed with an Educational Psychologist to determine the most appropriate and useful means of assessment and intervention for the child or young person.


Step 3: Assessment


If the child or young person is deemed an appropriate candidate for mental health work, an initial social, emotional and mental health assessment will be undertaken.

A recommendation will be provided to school outlining he number of sessions recommended in relation to the needs presented by the child or young person.


Step 5: Agreement


An agreement will be signed by school in relation to the work to be undertaken. An invoice will be issued with payment due within two weeks of issuing.


Step 6: Intervention


Following the SEMH assessment a course of sessions will be planned and delivered in school.


Step 7: Assessment


A social, emotional and mental health assessment will be undertaken to measure the impact of work undertaken with the young person.

Step 8: Feedback

The mental health worker will produce a report which will identify the child’s engagement with sessions and provide an indication of the progress made.


A feedback meeting may be arranged to discuss the assessment and findings at an additional cost.
