Establish a Mental Health Action Group
who can advise Senior Management on strategies to improve and support mental health and wellbeing across the school community.
Improve working and collaboration with mental health services
By improving working and collaboration with mental health services, children and young people are more likely to get the support they need when they need it.
Include pupils, staff, parents and carers in decision making
If schools and colleges wish to truly integrate mental health and wellbeing across the whole school community then it is important the views of all members of the community are represented.
Engage with all parents and carers
Research tells us that if parents and carers are actively involved in their children’s learning and activities at school, they will be more likely to thrive both in terms of academic performance and also in their general wellbeing.
