Mental Health and Well-being

We are working in conjunction with Mental Health Support Teams for Schools: Torbay and will be providing workshops for parents and carers.


The MHST team provide opportunities of support for children and young people with emerging, mild or moderate mental health difficulties impacting on day to day life. Depending on the age of the child or young person, our interventions can be accessed by children and young people, parents and carers.

They further provide support directly to school leadership teams with the aim of identifying themes of mental health need within their school community. This collaborative, needs led analysis will aim to develop existing mental health strategies to support the whole school approach to mental health. This service aims to promote the early detection and prevention of mental health issues across the whole school, and strengthen links between schools and wider childrens services.
