Education Mental Health Practitioner
We are very fortunate at Holy Family Primary School to have our own Education Mental Health Practitioner (EMHP), Emma Smith, who is based at our school setting one day per week.
What is the Mental Health Support Team (MHST)?
The Mental Health Support Team (MHST) is here to help your school to develop ways to look after the mental health of its students, staff, parents and carers.
Our Education Mental Health Practitioners (EMHPs) do this by supporting your school by understanding what you need, providing staff training and offering lessons on wellbeing.
Our EMHPs are also trained to give 1:1 support to students on anxiety, low mood and other struggles with wellbeing.
If you feel your child may benefit from Emma's support, please do not hesitate to contact your child's class teacher.
