Teaching Fellow (sessional contract)
Education Mental Health Practice (EMHP) is a new training being developed by the Child & Young Peoples Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (CYP-IAPT). CYP-IAPT is a service transformation and workforce programme led by NHS England, of which a large part is training for managers, supervisors and clinicians in delivering evidence based therapeutic practice. EMHP has been developed in response to the Government Green Paper on transforming young people’s mental health provision, which includes the development of Mental Health Support Teams (MHSTs) within schools. These teams will address the needs of children and young people by:
- Delivering evidence-based interventions for children and young people with mild-moderate mental health problems
- Helping children and young people with more severe problems to access specialist services
- Working with and within schools to have better access to specialist mental health services
