Mental Health in Children
Children's mental health
In every classroom there will be three children with mental health problems. More children and young people than ever before are reaching out for help with their mental health and as we are all aware, help can be too hard to find.
School staff undertake online safeguarding training for children. Our providers, Educare, also give access to short courses for parents/ carers and some courses suitable for children aged 11 years and up.
Topics include: Mental well being; Low mood and depression; Dealing with bereavement and loss; Understanding anxiety, Self-harm and more.
