I Need Help Now

Covid 19 Support

During lockdown we are committed to finding new ways of adapting our services so we can continue to deliver evidence-based therapies and support to our local communities.



Trailblazer – MHST’s – Supporting Educational Settings

If you are one of the settings involved in Wave 1 19/20 National Mental Health Support Teams (MHST) in Schools, we are probably in touch with you already, however, we are continuing to work in collaboration with you to provide services remotely.  We remain committed to undertaking Consultation meetings with your Schools Mental Health Lead and to find out how we can best support whether this be yourselves, your teaching and support staff or your children and parents/carers. 

We are doing this through telephone or Microsoft Teams for example.  We are still open to referrals and recognising that anxieties, low mood and depression may increase during this time, want to be able to respond in a proactive and creative way.  We continue to deliver groupwork, for example We Eat Elephants, or Parent-Led CBT, perhaps through digital media, video recording (Skype, WhatsApp or Zoom) or through the help of school’s platforms for learning, for example Dojo or Seesaw.  We want to talk with you about finding these new ways of working together and what might work best.  If you are one of our schools who aren’t currently involved in Trailblazer, let us know if we can help to do something different.  There are many ways to support you, your pupils and your school community.

Supporting Our Existing Projects

If you are one of our existing projects let us know if we can provide any different services for you and your clients at this time.  How can we support your staff who may be keyworkers and working frontline?  Maybe we can offer that listening ear or support with supervision at this time?

For more information please contact the team.

Other School Settings

We want to reach out to other settings, whether you are primary, secondary a college or alternative education, so although you may not currently be involved with the local MHST offer or have an existing arrangement in place, please get in touch as we may be able to help by providing advice, support, guidance and self-help so that you can get the right support for yourself, your staff and your pupils and parents/carers.

Supporting Children & Young People

If you are worried about Covid-19, perhaps your parents or family members are a ‘keyworkers’ and working in potentially higher risk situations, or maybe you are worried about going outside in case you are putting yourself more at risk? You may already have anxiety, worry or low mood and things that are happening during this time is making things worse for you?  Maybe we can help?  Your school or college may be part of the new Trailblazer Mental Health Support Teams, if so click here.  If not we may still be able to help by providing advice, support, guidance and self-help so that you can get the right support for you and your parents/carers.
