WAMHS Project

We are delighted to be participating in the Wellbeing and Mental Health in Schools (WAMHS) Project.  This innovative project aims to improve support around mental health and wellbeing for children and young people in schools, colleges and specialist and alternative provision settings in City & Hackney.
WAMHS began as a pilot project in September 2018 and is now in its 5th successful year.  Please see the leaflet below for further information.
Our Educational Mental Health Practitioner (EMHP)
Hello, my name is Alice Saynor and I am an Educational Mental Health Practitioner working for the NHS alongside CAMHS. I will be working at Our Lady and St Joseph Catholic Primary School (OLSJ) on Tuesday afternoons. My role involves helping children and young people manage common mental health problems, particularly mild to moderate symptoms of anxiety, low mood and behaviour problems. I work 1-1 with parents as well as group work with the primary school pupils.
