The TaMHS Building Blocks

The Northamptonshire TaMHS Programme uses the 'Building Blocks' in order to build Mentally Healthy Schools in Northamptonshire. It supports schools in building their own capacity so they can implement approaches, programmes and interventions, which have a positive impact on children's mental health. The development of staff knowledge, confidence and skills within this area is also central to the programme.

 The TaMHS Building Blocks model and key processes for developing the school offer are as follows:
