As many of you will know, this past week has been nationally noted as Mental Health Awareness Week. It is now commonly accepted amongst experts that half of all mental health conditions in adults are established before the age of fourteen. This is why the mental health and well-being of children and young people is now gaining an ever higher profile in the media and the health care sector. Mrs Pelling, our Child and Family Support Worker, sent our e-mails to families this week with information booklets on emotional well-being and positive steps to maintain good mental health. To complement this, pupils had an assembly on Friday which used some of the material that can be found in the following link
Families may want to make use of some of the content to become better informed on children’s emotional resilience and well-being strategies, and are always welcome to contact Mrs Pelling for further information and advice.
