MindMate Wellbeing (Cluster Mental Health Support)


This continues the work of the TaMHS (Targeted Mental Health in Schools) Leeds project which rolled out cluster mental health support.

MindMate Wellbeing is part of the Future in Mind Leeds strategy. It is funded by the clusters themselves and investment from the Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs). This includes the new Specialist Inclusive Learning Centre (SILC) cluster.This work in the clusters is part of their Guidance and Support multi professional team.

Clusters offer a range of early help services and now take referrals form the MindMate Single Point of Access. Schools should use their clusters for support and NOT the MindMate Single Point of Access. Onward referrals to toher servcies will be managed by the cluster.

Funded by the Leeds CCGs and run by the Health and Wellebing Service in partnership with Northpoint Wellbeing, this is free to all Leeds schools and offers highly subsidised training.
