Mental Health Support Team (MSHT)
The Mental Health Support Team (MHST) work alongside schools and the Children and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) to support children and young people with their mental health and wellbeing.
They help children and parents with a range of different difficulties such as: anxiety, worry, challenging behaviour, phobias, panic attacks, low mood, OCD and single event trauma.
The MHST strive to provide accessible support for families and to avoid children being placed on a waiting lists of up to 18 months.
After being assessed by a trained professional, the MHST can offer children a range of support to enable them to understand and manage their emotions more effectively as well as offering courses to parents and carers so that they are also aware of how to support their children within these difficult situations.
The MHST is here to offer support so if you think this is something that could help you, please contact our office team on the email firstname.lastname@example.org or speak to a member of staff at school who will assist you with this process.
Please look out for key dates on our monthly newsletters with details of events run by the MHST. These events are free and provide an opportunity for children to to express their emotions often in a creative and imaginative way.
Please look at the leaflet below for an example of the events which are run.
