We are one of the schools in Somerset who are being supported by the Mental Health Support Team (MHST). MHST in Somerset is a collaboration between Somerset NHS Foundation Trust - CAMHS and Young Somerset.
Mental Health Support Teams (MHST) were established to improve children & young people’s access to early mental health and wellbeing services, by providing support in schools.
MHST’s have 3 core functions –
1- To provide evidence-based Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) interventions for mild to moderate mental health and wellbeing needs through: 1:1 Support (face to face or virtual), Group Work, and Support for Parents.
2- Supporting the Senior Mental Health Lead in each MHST school to introduce or develop a whole school approach to mental health and wellbeing.
3- Give timely advice to schools, provide signposting and liaising with external agencies to get the right support.
MHST staff are supporting our school working along side all staff, students and parents to help create a more Mentally Healthy school environment for all.
