Mental Health Practitioners

In 2020, the NHS Digital report: Mental Health of Children and Young People in England found a sharp increase in children experiencing mental health difficulties.

We know how important it is to support our school community in practising good mental health and wellbeing –  that’s why we’ve introduced our students, staff and parents alike to Educational Mental Health Practitioners (EMHPs) at both of our school sites.

Our on site EMPHs are here to provide us with emotional and therapeutic support such as:

  • advise on sleep hygiene, problem solving and panic attacks
  • education in managing anxiety and depression
  • approaches to improve emotional health and wellbeing
  • advising and signposting staff to ensure children and young people get the right support

More information on each of our EMHP services can be viewed below.
