We are very proud to be part of the Trailblazer project for Richmond as part of the Green paper on Mental Health with the aim of 'Transforming mental health provision for children and young people in schools'. We will be helping to shape what this support will look like in schools and will have access to a Mental Health Support Team (MHST) who will provide additional expertise, capacity and support to help us treat mild to moderate mental health issues and support mental health & wellbeing. All good news for schools!
1 in 8 children and young people have a diagnosable #mentalhealth condition.
Every February we support Place2Be’s #ChildrensMentalHealthWeek - raising awareness of the importance of children and young people’s mental health. Learn more: childrensmentalhealthweek.org.uk
