Mental Health and Well-being
Everyone has ‘mental health’ and this can be thought of in terms of:
- how we feel about ourselves and the people around us;
- our ability to make and keep friends and relationships;
- our ability to learn from others and to develop psychologically and emotionally.
Being mentally healthy is also about having the strength to overcome the difficulties and challenges we can all face at times in our lives – having the confidence and self-esteem to be able to take decisions and to believe in ourselves.
At Manor Field, we believe it is important to raise the profile of how to look after our mental health and wellbeing. There are many ways we support children with their mental health and wellbeing in school, and we have recently established a Community and Wellbeing group, where ambassadors across year 3 to year 6 have been chosen to be advocates for mental health in young people. Anne Sheret is the Mental Health and Wellbeing Champion for the school and she would be happy to talk to you about any concerns to do with your child's mental health or well being.
The following leaflets from the NHS also provide some signposted help:
