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.
Oakway Academy has a TAMHS Silver award for its work in implementing and embedding many of the recognised TAMHS programmes across the academy. Through participation in the TAMHS training including bespoke training and consultation we are able to offer children and families provisions that promotes children’s mental health. These programmes are designed to support all children and some specific programmes are designed to include those who are vulnerable to mental health difficulties or those who already experience high level difficulties with mental health. We already provide all of the programmes identified with a star.
