Young Minds Matter/Trailblazers Programme
At Queen Margaret Primary School we are delighted that our school has been given the opportunity to take part in a new , national programme to help make mental health support to children and young people more available when needed.
We are one of the many Gloucestershire schools who are working alongside NHS Gloucestershire to introduce this support into schools under the umbrella of Young Minds Matter.
A Mental Health Support Team (MHST) led by a Senior Education Mental health Practitioner , will visit school to help identify children in need to provide support at the earliest opportunity. This may involve group work, and /or individual one to one support over a period of several weeks.
The areas that may ne identified include: anxiety, friendship difficulties, challenging behaviour or low mood.
You can find out more about the programme from Mrs Bennion or Mrs Kelly.
