We know that schools are in a unique position to help prevent mental health problems by promoting wellbeing, positive mental health and resilience as part of an integrated approach that is tailored to the needs of their students.

We are here to support you to implement the Whole School Approach in your school.

Our team offers interventions and support for young people, parents and staff in order to promote mental health and wellbeing We can also assist staff with identifying mental health difficulties in students, as well as support with recommendations for referrals to further agencies when the problems fall outside of the low to moderate category In order to help us tailor the approach of our work to your school we will work closely with your Designated Mental Health Lead and staff and together establish and plan our provision in the upcoming school year.

Feedback from parents

I am more aware that my child is at risk of suffering from ANXIETY in today’s World… This is a Reality for all Parents, we need to be Proactive, and ready to tackle the problems and face the realities in order to keep children (and adults) as safe as possible.

It made me think about how I manage my own mental health and what I can do to improve my mental and physical health and wellbeing

Thank you so much for running the sessions. I found the sessions very helpful and informative. It was a great opportunity to hear and share ideas from parents too

I thought Agata and Ayla’s workshops were very informative and providing reassurance of how we are dealing with our children’s wellbeing. I very much enjoyed the input from other parents particularly during this challenging time. Thanks!

Working with staff

Good staff wellbeing has been shown to be essential for cultivating a mentally healthy school and for promoting pupil wellbeing and attainment As school staff juggle a multitude of different tasks and demands, it is important that everyone is given the right emotional and practical support so that they can, in turn, support their pupils.

As part of the Whole School Approach we offer psychoeducational workshops to staff in order to spread mental health awareness, challenge mental health stigma, help to improve their emotional health and equip them with knowledge of how to support children and young people’s wellbeing.

Feedback from staff

It is reassuring that I know that my school cares about and prioritises the well-being of the children, my colleagues and myself (especially during this unusual time). It helped me to reflect on my personal coping strategies for my individual situation.

Presentations by both leaders were clear, helpful, practical and pitched appropriately. Some of the best training I have had, so thank you. Very enjoyable to participate in and I look forward to more.

This course is helping me to realize that I need to make space to “pamper” my wellbeing. I feel really lucky both in my personal and professional life but I am always very busy and hardly have any time for myself, which has an impact on both.

I feel I will be able to better identify and support pupils with mental health problems and to promote healthy habits among children. I also feel it helped me to be more aware of my own struggles and to understand and accept that we will experience mood swings more frequently.
