Mental Health

What is Mental Health?

When our mental health is good, we feel positive about ourselves. When we are finding things hard and we begin to struggle, this can impact our mental health.

A mentally Healthy School is one that adopts a whole-school approach to mental health and wellbeing. It is a school that helps children flourish, learn and succeed by providing opportunities for them, and the adults around them, to develop the strengths and coping skills that underpin resilience.

A mentally healthy school sees positive mental health and wellbeing as fundamental to its values, mission and culture.

It is a school where child, staff and parent/carer mental health and wellbeing is seen as ‘everybody’s business’.
