Wellbeing and Mental Health

Support for well-being and mental health at St Mary’s:

WAMHS (Well-being and mental health in schools) aim is to improve the wellbeing and mental health of all pupils, parents and staff and at St Mary’s we are delighted to be part of this. In order to take the project forward we have been allocated a CAMHS (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services) worker – Ms Chen, who will be in school two days per month on a Thursday starting in the Summer Term.

Yuci Chen is employed by Homerton University Hospital Foundation Trust and also works for the First Steps Early Intervention and Community Psychology Service in City and Hackney. Ms Chen will provide training, consultation and support to staff, parents and carers. She will also provide signposting to specialist services and help us to develop and sustain closer working links between CAMHS and St Mary’s Primary School.
