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.

How it works

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.
