Mental Health Support Teams (MHST)

Who are we?

Mental Health Support Teams (MHSTs) are a new service designed to help meet the mental health needs of children and young people in selected education settings i.e. Schools and Colleges.

Teams are made up of professionals called Clinical Lead Practitioners and Education Mental Health Practitioners (EMHPs). These are workers who have had specialised training to support young people presenting with a wide range of mental health issues, and they work closely with schools/colleges and other children and young people's services.

How do we find out more?

MHSTs, along with all Children and Young People’s (CYP) Services in Lincolnshire, are working hard to make our services as accessible as possible to young people, so you can access the right support at the right time.  For more information about what support is available to you, please speak to your school/college to find what services are available.

If you are not open to any of our services, and are struggling with your mental health, and want to talk to a mental health professional to find out what supports are available, please contact our Here4You line on 0800 234 6342 or find out more about self referral on our webpage.
