Introducing the Mental Health Support Team
The MHST Team are part of the Bee U Service. For Shropshire schools it consists of 4 Trainee Education Mental Health and Emotional Wellbeing Practitioners and 2 qualified practitioners that are senior members of the team.
The MHST Role
Education Mental Health Practitioners (EMHPs) are part of the government’s Mental Health Support Team’s (MHST) plans for schools to provide early intervention mental health support. Currently in the Trailblazer stage, our school is part of the trailblazer wave of this national project and so is part of learning how this will work in practice.
The MHS team will be working closely with our school.
- Brief, focused, evidence based interventions in the form of low-intensity support and self-help to children and young people with mild to moderate difficulties.
- For children and young people aged 5-18 years old.
- Typically offered over 6 sessions.
- The EMHP are school based and will work in partnership and in collaboration with schools, helping to develop whole school approaches.
