If you are concerned about a child or young person’s behaviour, or about their emotional or mental health needs there is help and support available.
Parents, carers and children or young people can call directly to ask for help and support:
If you wish to speak to someone about a child or young person’s emotional or mental health needs – please contact the Single Point of Access on 0115 876 4000
If you wish to speak to someone about a child or young person’s behavioural or emotional needs – please contact the Behavioural and Emotional Health Team on 0115 8761716
There are many services available in Nottingham City to help with children and young people’s behavioural, emotional or mental health needs. The team which answers the phone will take your details and ask a few questions. They will then pass this information to a multi-agency team which will review it and decide which service would be best to offer you support. The multi-agency team will then contact you by your choice of phone, letter or email to arrange the next steps.
This support is provided as part of the Nottingham City pathway for children and young people with behavioural, emotional or mental health needs. The pathway is for children and young people who:
- Present with concerns about their behaviour, emotional wellbeing or mental health
- Present with concerns about possible ASD or ADHD
- Are registered with a NHS Nottingham City GP
- Are aged 0 to 18 (the pathway extends up to the age of 24 where the young person has an Education, Health and Care Plan - EHCP).
If you wish to make a referral to the Behavioural & Emotional Health Team please take time to review the Referral Guidance.

From the 1st of September 2022 only the July 2022 versions of the referral form will be accepted. These changes are being made in order to make identified changes to improve wait times, system/process efficiently and ensure that children and young people receive the right support, at the right time and from the correct service.
