Sallyann Sutton

My specialist area and passion is children and young people’s mental health and wellbeing. I hold a MSC in Child and Family Mental Health in 2009 and a PGD in Public Mental Health and worked in a Primary Mental Health team developing pathway across School Nursing Services and CAMHS. I was the Regional project lead for the Targeted Mental Health in Schools (TaMHS) working for NHS West Midlands and part of a local TaMHS implementation team. I was a member of the expert panel for the development of the handbook for Mental Health Support Teams in School and I am topic expert for NICE contributing to the development of Public Health guidance Including ‘alcohol education in schools’ and more recently ‘social and emotional wellbeing in schools’. I am part of the local Children and Young People’s Mental Health Strategy and Transformation Group and chair the Early Help Steering group. I have a keen interest in leadership, people development and service development. I hold the Elizabeth Garrett Anderson NHS Senior Healthcare Leadership Award and MSc in Healthcare Leadership, a ILM Coaching qualification and I am a qualified NLP practitioner. I was part of the PHE National School Nurse leaders development programme. I have led a School Nursing Service through an extensive service and workforce redevelopment and re-tender process. Outside of work I am keen cyclist and volunteer a British Cycling ride leader and cycle coach and I enjoy skiing. You can follow me on Twitter @sallyann8 or view my Linkedin  profile at
