Mental Health Support Team
Tees Valley Voluntary and community sector providers have formed a partnership to create the South Tees Mental Health Support Team. The partnership members include ABC Counselling, Play Therapy & Family Solutions, The Link, Middlesbrough and Stockton Mind, The Junction, A Time 4 you, , Changing Futures North East, and Redcar and Cleveland Mind.
From September 2021 the Mental Health Support Team will work across South Tees schools to deliver three core functions:
- Support senior mental health leads in educational settings to develop and introduce their whole school or whole college approach to mental health and emotional wellbeing
- Deliver evidence based interventions for mild to moderate mental health and emotional wellbeing needs
- Provide timely advice to staff and liaise with external specialist services so that children and young people can get the right support and remain in education
Schools identified to be involved in this initial stage of the Mental Health Support Team are detailed in the table below. If your child does not attend one of these schools and requires support please contact us to see what support is available.
