Bucks Mental Health Support Team

One in 10 children between the ages of 5-16 years, or three children in every classroom, have a diagnosable mental health difficulty.

The Bucks Mental Health Support Team (MHST) supports young people who have emotional wellbeing difficulties, including anxiety and low mood, confidence and self esteem issues. We provide evidence based therapeutic support both individually and in groups to young people and parents.

The MHST offers training to school professionals to help them identify mild to moderate mental health and emotional wellbeing difficulties in their students. We offer workshops on supporting students in school who are showing anxiety, low mood, self harm, and other mental health difficulties.

Educational support

Working in partnership with Buckinghamshire Council, our team consists of Education Mental Health Practitioners, Youth Workers and Family Workers.

The Bucks Mental Health Support Team works with a number of education providers including: primary schools, secondary schools, special schools, post 16 higher education and pupil referral units. To see whether your/your child’s school is covered by the MHST please see below.
