Northamptonshire Targeted Mental Health in Schools (TaMHS) is a coordinated multi-agency programme for building capacity within schools through training, support and introducing new programmes and approaches to better meet the mental health needs of all children.
The programme can be used at universal, targeted and more specialist levels, including through systemic work with parents, staff and locality agencies. By meeting mental health needs in this way, sustainable positive impact on children’s mental health, attainments, bullying, attendance and exclusions can be achieved.
One example of a school community that has benefitted from TaMHS input is Moulton Primary – as shown on BBC’s Look East broadcast on 17 January 2018. The school currently holds TaMHS Gold Accreditation through demonstrating good practice in promoting, delivering and embedding interventions for children’s mental health.
