Our School is taking part in a national initiative known as Trailblazers. As a Trailblazer school, we are working with statutory health providers who will be delivering mental health service delivery to pupils within our school.
We are pleased that our school has been given the opportunity to participate in a new, national programme to help make mental health support for children and young people more available when they need it.
We are one of 72 schools from Cheltenham, Gloucester and the Forest of Dean to work with the NHS in Gloucestershire to introduce Mental Health Support Teams into schools.
We hope that this will provide valuable support to our pupils to help them with life’s ups and down, for example, with issues such as anxiety, friendship concerns, exam stress and challenging behaviour.
This may involve group work and/or individual, one-to-one support, either at school or elsewhere. Where appropriate, the Mental Health Support Team will also link up with the specialist mental health services in Gloucestershire. They will also support parents and teachers to help children and young people who are experiencing difficulties.
If you have any queries or concerns or would like to make a referral to the service, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
Young Minds Matter (YMM) is a safe and confidential mental health support service developed for children and young people up to 18 years of age in schools across Gloucestershire.
The team can offer you support if you are struggling with things like anxiety, low mood and poor sleep or similar concerns. This can be either face-to-face in school or via a virtual online platform. To meet with someone from Young Minds Matter you can ask a teacher/member of staff in the school to make a referral for you. Alternatively, if you attend a secondary school and would prefer not to talk to someone at school you can refer yourself into the team using YMMChat: 07480 635723
(Monday to Friday 9am – 4:30pm) Except Bank Holidays.
