Work within schools and undertake appropriate mental health assessment of children and young people referred to the mental health support team providing a range of appropriate, evidence based clinical interventions informed by assessed individual need. The post holder will provide support, advice and consultation to families/carers and other professionals involved in the life of the child/young person.

The MHST works in schools alongside the existing School Link team.

Each school within the MHST offer has a group of designated practitioners, who will work closely with the school's mental health lead to provide the 3 core functions. Our team of MHST practitioners is made up of:
  • CYWPs - Children and Young People's Well-being Practitioners
  • EMHPs - Education Mental Health Practitioners
  • Trainee CYWPs/EMHPs
  • CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) Therapists
  • Mental Health Practitioners (Senior EMHPs/CYWPs in a supervising role)

MHST Practitioners meet with their schools regularly to discuss referrals and provide support with developing a Whole School Approach. MHST practitioners will also provide the majority of evidence-based interventions to the students in their schools, unless it has been decided that another member of the team would be more appropriate (e.g. students that require CBT, or trainees requiring specific presentations in order to pass their course).
