One In A Million Free School are delighted to have been allocated an Education Mental Health Practitioner for two days each week.
Halima Begum, part of the newly formed Mental Health Work Force, will now be working with our young people and staff each Thursday and Friday to address mild to moderate mental health concerns as part of the National NHS Trailblazer programme.
|The Trailblazer programme has three key objectives:|
- The new mental health work force has been established as part of the national trailblazer to improve and increase availability to children’s mental health services and mental health and wellbeing support.
- Trailblazer sites will test how MHSTs can work with schools, local authority and other services and reduce waiting times for specialist NHS mental health services.
- Faster access to NHS care – to bridge the gap between health and education .
|Halima is trained to deliver Low Intensity Cognitive Behaviour Treatments (CBT) to any student demonstrating mild to moderate mental health concerns.|
What is the approach Halima uses?
