Education Link is a service providing a range of advice, support, guidance and educational opportunities for adults living with mental health and emotional needs. The service covers the community mental health teams across North Devon and is available to people living in North Devon, including; Barnstaple, Ilfracombe, South Molton, Torrington, Holsworthy and surrounding areas.
This is a confidential and informal service, offering support to people who wish to overcome personal and social barriers, which they feel are holding them back from education, training or employment.
Education Link works with other Devon Partnership NHS Trust community services, Link Social Care Service, education, employment providers and community organisations to ensure the service offered supports people’s recovery.
The work of this service also involves making communities more aware of mental health and wellbeing to reduce discrimination and to help individuals join in with their local communities, thus promoting social inclusion and engagement.
