Coming soon… our MHSTs are currently being implemented and as the service develops we’ll keep you updated here.
Our Mental Health Support Teams (MHSTs) will work with 58 schools and colleges across the Preston, Chorley, South Ribble and West Lancashire areas. They will help pupils with issues like anxiety, low mood, and behavioural difficulties.
The Compass model ensures children and young people access the right early help, in the right setting; removing duplication and preventing CYP/families being ‘bounced’ in-between services. The model includes:
- Delivering evidence based interventions for mild to moderate mental health and emotional wellbeing needs
- Supporting designated senior MH lead in each school/education setting
- Providing timely advice to school and college staff
