We are a ‘Trailblazers school’
Trailblazers is a partnership of Mental Health Support Teams (MHSTs: a workforce which began in early 2019). Trailblazers work within Haringey schools to raise the profile of mental health, promoting and delivering early intervention and prevention. Trailblazers is made up of wellbeing workers and mental health professionals, who support emotional wellbeing and deliver interventions for children, young people and parents.
Schools play an important role in supporting the wellbeing of children and young people at a time when they are experiencing lots of physical, emotional and social changes. For some children, this stage of growing up can sometimes become overwhelming or difficult to manage, and it can be made worse by life events such as changing schools, exams, challenging home circumstances, bullying or difficult friendships. It is our job to support our children in their times of need.
Trailblazers have supported many of our children at St Ignatius. They can provide group sessions, one-to-one sessions, and sessions for parents and families on a number of issues, such as anxiety, challenging behaviour and friendships.
We will be holding termly coffee mornings for you to come and find out more about what Trailblazers can offer. Look on the website and on parent mail for details of the next one.
