Hamish & Milo is a comprehensive SEL and SEMH intervention programme to support a whole school graduated response to support the high level of primary-stage children with SEMH difficulties.
We provide the framework, language and content for courageous conversations about mental health and emotions and the structure to support children’s emotional and social development.
