Introduction to TaMHS

Targeted Mental Health in Schools (TaMHS) is a three-year pathfinder programme aimed at supporting the development of innovative models of therapeutic and holistic mental health support in schools for children and young people aged five to 13 at risk of, and/or experiencing, mental health problems; and their families.

The programme began in April 2008 when 25 Local Authorities and their corresponding Primary Care Trusts (PCTs) commenced pathfinder work.

The selection process has now been completed and East Riding of Yorkshire has been selected for Phase 2 of the roll-out.

The national roll-out was launched on 18 November 2008 with LAs and their corresponding PCTs invited to submit expressions of interest to take part in a process to select 55 phase 2 and 72 phase 3 TaMHS pathfinders.

Phase 2 - 55 LAs and their partner PCTs will enrol in April 2009 and will receive a funding grant for two years until March 2011.
