Bromley Y, The Charity

Bromley Y hosts the services below, but the Charity arm provides longer term interventions that sit outside of contracted services. These longer-term interventions include our volunteer mentoring in schools at any age and in the community for young people aged 14 to 18 years.

Fundraising is an essential part of the Charity work to support these functions.

Integrated Single Point of Access (iSPA)

Bromley Y and Bromley Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) provide the Single Point of Access for all children and young people’s mental health and emotional wellbeing services in Bromley.
This service is hosted by Bromley Y.

The iSPA provides a shared, integrated referral system with joint triaging and pathway decision making.

Mental Health and Emotional Wellbeing Service (MHEWS)

Bromley Y was awarded the tender in 2021 to provide the Mental Health and Emotional Wellbeing Service (MHEWs) which reaches out into the community offering advice, signposting, group work as well short-term, low to medium level interventions to children, young people and parents/carers. We work in a systemic way, collaborating with other services to ensure that the young person’s needs are kept at the centre of our pathway planning. 

Mental Health Support Teams (MHST)

Bromley Y provides the Mental Health Support Teams in 63 Bromley schools, working with school Mental Health Leads and other professionals to promote a whole-school approach to mental health and wellbeing.

The MHST service provides a range of psycho-education interventions, live webinars, targeted group work, guided self-help and advice, offering consultations with parents/carers and school professionals to support young people.
