Mental Health Support Team (MHST) Brighter Futures for Children (BFfC)

The MHST will support children and young people with emerging, mild or moderate mental health difficulties which may be affecting day to day life. The project is for those pupils on roll at 15 schools in West Reading.
Depending on the age of the child or young person, we may work either directly with them or with their parents. We also work with school staff and offer support on different levels; with the aim of developing and supporting a whole school approach to mental health.
