Mental Health Support

Mental Health Support Team work for CAMHs, their role being to work with schools and offer additional support for young people’s mental health needs.  They will work with groups of young people with mild to moderate mental health needs, as well as providing 1:1 interventions and parent led work.  They will also be working with the school staff to introduce and support with whole school mental health approaches.  This helps to bridge the gap between health and education services, as well as providing early help and support. 

Some of the things MHST can help with are: 

  • Low mood
  • Worries
  • Exam stress
  • Sleep
  • Fears / difficulties with emotions
  • Coping strategies
  • Problem solving
