Massage in Schools Programme (MISP) – Evaluation in Northamptonshire TaMHS Project

By Mike Simons, Specialist Senior Educational Psychologist

The Conclusion from results of MISP Evaluation state ”The combination of quantitative and qualitative results from the MISP evaluation that involved teachers, support staff, parents and pupils, suggests that MISP can have a positive impact on the mental health of pupils, especially in terms of their self-esteem, friendships, pro-social skills, conduct problems and the class becoming more of a team and being calm. There is some indication of increased impact on engagement with learning, including with children who are vulnerable to mental health difficulties.”
