Mental Health and Wellbeing
Most families have experienced upheaval in their daily lives during the pandemic. With children and young people now back at school, the new Public Health England (PHE) Better Health – Every Mind Matters campaign provides NHS-endorsed tips and advice to help children and young people’s mental wellbeing, and equip parents and carers with the knowledge to support them.
The new advice available on the Every Mind Matters website has been developed in partnership with leading children and young people’s mental health charities, including Young Minds, The Mix, Place2Be and The Anna Freud Centre. It is designed to help parents and carers spot the signs that children may be struggling with their mental health and support them, and also provides advice that can help maintain good mental wellbeing. The site also provides tools to help young people build resilience and equips them to look after their mental wellbeing.
Please see below for what staff at Balfour are doing to support children's wellbeing in the classroom.
If you have any concerns about your child's Emotional Mental Health and Wellbeing you are invited to talk to a Primary Mental Health Worker from the Schools Wellbeing Service. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like any further information or advice.
