Trailblazer

Twenty-four pilot primary schools have now signed up to host twelve trainee Education Mental Health Practitioners (EMHPs) and mental health leads from each school have attended a training session around making referrals into the service. The practitioners (EMPHs) will be providing low-level interventions for children showing early signs of anxiety, low-mood and mild depression.
