Elements Support; What’s it all about? Why does it exist?
Elements is a social and emotional mental health support service for children, young people, and adults in supportive roles. The main objective of Elements Support is to help children & young people connect across the four elements of well-being:
Physical, environmental, social and mental.
By doing so, we can begin to assess which element may need more attention i.e. the child’s physical health may be positive; water, sleep, nutrition, exercise etc, however, they may be struggling with their social health; relationships with family, friends, communication issues and so we would need to focus more attention on the social wellbeing as opposed to the physical.
