Alexander McLeod Primary School

Mental Health in Schools (MHST)

They are a brand new team established October 2019 after recommendations from the government Green Paper ‘Transforming Children and Young Peoples Mental Health Provision’ set out a plan to implement mental health teams within schools to support children and young people with low level mental health difficulties as well as helping to develop school cultures that are ‘mentally healthy’ including supporting and adding to what all schools are already doing to support the wellbeing of pupils and staff.

 They offer a range of support services for both children and parents.  

Referrals for parent support can be made via the school or directly to Kayleigh at MHST.
