Introducing our Educational Mental Health Practitioner
I’m Steph and I am a Trainee Educational Mental Health Practitioner (EMHP) in the Calderdale Mental Health Support Team (MHST). My team is part of the Open Minds Partnership and helps children and young people to improve their mental and emotional health.
I’m trained in a special type of intervention based on evidence of what works best for children and their parents and carers called Low Intensity Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).
I might work with you, or your family, for a short period of time if you have been feeling very sad or worried for a while. I can also help by working with adults at your school to think about other types of support that might help you. Another part of my job is looking at ways that The Greetland Academy can help everyone at your school with their mental health.
If you feel that the Mental Health Support team could help you or your family, please speak to Miss Simpson.
I’m really looking forward to working with your lovely school and getting to know you more!
