NEWHAM MENTAL HEALTH SUPPORT TEAM

1aq(1)

We are very excited to be part of a national initiative which will involve working with a new Newham MHST, in order to increase early help for children and young people beginning to struggle with aspects of their social and/emotional development. 

The MHST comes under Newham CAMHS (East London NHS Foundation Trust), and works collaboratively with HeadStart and Place2Be. 

Schools participating in the project commit to working closely with students, parents and carers in order to understand and address their views and needs and make best use of their strengths and resources.

WHO ARE WE ?

Educational Mental Health Practitioners (EMHPs) are part of the Mental Health Support Team (MHST) and work directly with schools and colleges to provide mental health support for the whole school community.

WHY?

Mental Health Support Teams (MHST) were set up as part of the government's response to the growing concern around the mental health of children and young people. They aim to work collaboratively with health and education systems to provide a well-rounded approach to well-being support.
