Mental Health Support Team

 At SSPP,  we work closely with the Redbridge Mental Health Support Team.   Mental Health Support Teams (MHSTs) are a new service designed to help meet the mental health needs of children and young people in primary, secondary and further education (primarily for ages 5 to 18), by providing mental health support in schools, colleges and other education settings such as alternative provision.

Meet the Team


Hi, I am Lauren Coates, a Senior Specialist Educational Psychologist and Manager in Redbridge Mental Health Support Team.  My job is to work with chidlren, young people, parents/carers and schools to promote whole school emotional wellbeing.  I am committed to breaking the stigma around emotional wellbeing and mental health.  You will likely cross paths with me at coffee mornings or when I am delviering group support.  I also provide support to school staff through consultation and training.  I feel very priviledged to be working with the SSPP school community.

Hi, I am Beryl, an Educational Mental Health Practitioner with the Redbridge Mental Health Support Team and my job is to work with children, young people and parents/caregivers to support them with understanding emotions, developing positive self-esteem and finding the best ways to look after their mental health.  I am really looking forward to working with you all and seeing you around the school.
