Mounttown NYFP2 is a mental health programme which supports vulnerable children aged 8-13 who are having difficulties at primary school. These difficulties, which are often referred to as mental health problems, typically present themselves as behaviour and emotional difficulties, and have the effect of diminishing the child’s capacity to benefit from school, can interfere with other pupils learning, and increase the risk of early school leaving.
