Dorset Mental Health Support in Schools
Mental Health Support Teams in Schools (MHSTs)
As a school, we know we play an important role in supporting the wellbeing of children and young people at a time when they are experiencing lots of physical, emotional and social changes. We are proud to have the support of the Mental Health Support Team (MHST) working across our schools to provide an additional source of support to families and schools.
MHST's are helping children to feel more resilient, arming them with techniques to look after themselves and strategies to help them cope better with life's ups and downs. This includes support for things like anxiety and worries, exam stress and friendship issues, to counselling sessions, themed group work or information workshops. We also work closely with children on the transition from Year 6 to Year 7 in the Summer Term.
