Mentally Healthy Schools
Mentally Healthy Schools is a free website for primary schools, offering school staff information, advice and practical resources to better understand and promote pupils’ mental health and wellbeing.
The site is divided into four sections:
- Teaching resources - Quality-assured lesson plans, assembly plans and PSHE resources to support and assist in teaching and learning about general mental health and wellbeing.
- Risks and protective factors - A look at the issues which can undermine a child’s mental health, including bullying, family breakdown and more. Includes information on identifying pupils who may be at risk and practical resources to help support and build resilience.
- Mental health needs - Focuses on children who are struggling or are mentally unwell. It helps schools understand your role and how you can help promote your pupils' recovery.
- Whole-school approach - Helps school leaders develop the wider support across the school to help children, families and staff thrive.
