Social and Emotional Mental Health (SEMH)



Children and young people may experience a wide range of social and emotional difficulties which manifest themselves in many ways. These may include: becoming withdrawn or isolated, as well as displaying challenging, disruptive or disturbing behaviour. These behaviours may reflect underlying mental health difficulties such as:

  • anxiety or depression,
  • self-harming,
  • substance misuse,
  • eating disorders or
  • physical symptoms that are medically unexplained.
