As part of the NHS response to Coronavirus (COVID-19), we have made changes to the services we provide
The BeeU Mental Health Support Team supports 50 schools across Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin, these consist of a mix of primary and secondary schools.
The Team aims to promote the early detection and prevention of mental health problems across the whole school, and strengthen links between schools and mental health services.
Specially trained Education Mental Health Practitioners work closely with the designated Mental Health Lead for each of the schools, as well as other key school staff, to help support those pupils who may be experiencing emotional or mental health distress.
Baljit Nhal, Mental Health Support Team Manager says “As a team we are keen to ensure that we involve children and young people in the delivery and design of our service and thought it would be great to get them to help us create our brand new logos.
“Our primary winning entry was designed by Cole Jones, a Year 4 pupil from Sir Alexandra Fleming School, Telford, who loves drawing. The team loved his giraffe and the helpful words he had included within the design, which we feel will give young people an understanding of the importance of noticing and acknowledging feelings.
Libby Hewlett, a Year 8 pupil from Madeley Academy in Telford, was our secondary school winning entry. The team felt that Libby’s design captured what we aim to do, in helping young people look after their minds. Libby’s design was inspired by her understanding of how people’s mental health affects their minds, she involved her mother and nan in designing the logo, a true team effort!! “
The team will now be using these logos on all their paperwork, leaflets and website, thanks to Cole and Libby!
