Promoting mental health among students
What are the steps a school can take to promote mental health among students?
A good place to start is by looking at the resource ‘uthink’ in the resources section of the website; it is under mental health resources. You need to register to download this but it is free and very easy to do. This will give you a range of things to consider. It is important that an attempt is made for all staff to be involved in considering the mental health needs of students and as with many initiatives support from senior management is useful. A good way to get everyone thinking about this as a whole school issue is to try and use some whole school INSET time to consider the needs in your own school. The resources section of the website has some useful PowerPoints and training materials to help organise such a session. Hope this helps and thanks for contacting us.
