Mental Health & Emotionally Healthy Schools

Watch the video - Talking Mental Health is an animation designed to help begin conversations about mental health in the classroom and beyond.

As part of our Emotionally Healthy Schools initiative we have been talking about mental health, the children have taken part in assemblies about healthy bodies and healthy minds. They have looked at how to stay healthy and how to recognise when we need a little bit of help. With a focus on 'what to do if you are worried', we have talked about strategies we have in school to help.

Some strategies include:

yes Talk to an adult you trust - a family member, class teacher or any adult in school

yes Leave a note for your class worry monster (KS1)

yes Leave a note in the 'I wish someone knew' postbox (KS2)

yes Talk to our Learning Mentor or Younger Mind Counsellor

yes Discuss a referral to a specialist service such as CAMHS, School Nurse, Young Carers, Cheshire Without Abuse, Barnardos, and many many more
