EMOTIONAL AND MENTAL HEALTH SUPPORT

In addition to the initial support provided by LGLs and CLs, learners have access to group interventions that support them in a variety of ways, which include a focus on their emotional and mental wellbeing. These interventions are led by some of our own staff and by the Education Mental Health Practitioners (EMHPs).

The pathway interventions are;

  • Resilience and coping strategies

  • Communication and social interaction

  • Character Development

These pathway interventions are initially targeted at learners who would most benefit from them, but they are also available for other learners as they are delivered through a rolling programme each year. 

Mid and South Essex Mental Health Support Team

Additional support in school is provided by Children and Young People’s Mental Health Practitioners and Education Mental Health Practitioners. Mental Health Support Teams (MHSTs) are a new service designed to support children and young people with mild to moderate mental health and emotional wellbeing in education settings. 

MHSTs aims to:

  • support children and young people with mild to moderate mental health problems through evidence-based interventions

  • support schools in developing their whole school approach to mental health

  • provide timely advice to school staff and to liaise with other services in order to help children and young people get the right help and stay in education.
