Welcome to the burden basket

"Mental health problems rife among teenagers but teachers lack skills to help" says Guardian

FREE training for school staff in South Staffordshire that provides skills on helping teenagers' mental health

"MPs were warned that schools had only a “patchy” ability to pick up and prevent mental health problems in pupils."  -

Presumably because teachers' are pulled in many directions with competing demands on limited time?

If you are a teacher or school in South Staffordshire interested in gaining the skills  and knowledge of what to look for and what to do, consider the Hope Project for training and ongoing CPD.  FREE

The burden basket is a mental health service provider for children & young people.  It specialises in support for staff helping vulnerable, troubled children and young people in school settings.  We also offer therapy for adults or professional supervision/de-briefing.

We use qualified, trained staff to work with children and young people offering face to face therapy, web-based or telephone supervision sessions.  We can offer groups in schools on topics such as emotions, anxiety, confidence.

Schools can request training or buy-in a range of services. 

Parent/Carers can also request a range of services for their child or young person and family which are delivered within the child's school. 

As a business with a social aim the burden basket is founded on the principle that everyone's mental health and overall emotional wellbeing is extremely important.  As the business has developed many children and young people have benefited through re-investment into local school communities. Sessions have been offered in schools on range of topics.

We pride ourselves on offering a quality service based on extensive knowledge and experience.  This enables us to be responsive in a crisis,  flexible in meeting needs and ensure satisfaction with our support.  Through all this, we can help others' mental health.  We aim to offer quality at a reasonable price and we have done well so far!  Read more "About Us".

A report from the Children's Commissioner for England in July 2017 found that over 800,000 children in England have a mental health problem, while a separate review showed that over a quarter of children referred to mental health services in 2015 received no help — even those who had attempted suicide.

Training for South Staffordshire School staff in CYP Mental Health starting Sept 2018

Develop your own MH Lead as per Government Green Paper:

HOPE is a project offering training and ongoing professional development for school staff to develop the skills to help child & adolescent  mental health

The HOPE Project began from a need to offer mental health support to pupils in schools.  As cuts to services have increased children are being left with minimal, if any help for their difficulties.  School staff have been left to manage vulnerable children without the knowledge or training of specialist mental health practitioners.  HOPE plugs some of that gap with evidence-based tools and interventions.

The four South Staffs CCG's have agreed to fund a further year of training for FREE in 2018-2019. Starting 11th Sept 2018.  To book on for FREE your school must be in the locality of Seisdon Peninsula, Stafford, Cannock, Lichfield, Tamworth, Burton, Uttoxeter.  There is a cost for out of area schools.
