It’s a Knockout in NEL!

Ten members of the North East Lincolnshire CAMHS Team completed the It’s a Knockout challenge in Cleethorpes this weekend to raise money for the NSPCC and the local St Andrews Hospice.

Through a variety of games, including races dressed as giants and finding socks in a foamy, inflatable washing machine, they scored a total of 125 points placing them in the middle of the overall scoreboard.

Altogether the team raised £855 for the charities!  Jamee-Leigh, CAMHS Assistant Psychologist, who organised the team’s participation in the event, said “thank you to all team members and everyone who sponsored us!  The day was a real success and everyone had a great time.”

Exam Stress

Exams, and the studying that accompanies them, can be a stress trigger for many students and pupils.

As we approach revision season, it can sometimes be challenging to maintain both perspective and balance.

Often, talking to others can help; there are also several online resources and materials that can be accessed.  We have sourced some useful articles and guidance, some of which may be useful for parents, guardians or carers, as well as those undertaking exams directly.

Recent Cyber Attacks

You may have seen the recent media coverage regarding the virus that has affected many computerised systems and networks across multiple NHS England and NHS Scotland sites, including Trusts.

Unfortunately,  Lincolnshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust is one of those affected sites.

Contingency plans are in place, it is very much “Business as Usual” as we strive to continue to provide services to our Service Users.

We hope full access will be restored soon, with minimal disruption to our service delivery.
