Mental Health & Well-being

Why we must never stop talking about children and young people’s mental health
Better mental health starts with a conversation. Achieving that first step – mustering the courage to share something so deeply personal and troubling – needs support, understanding and encouragement. This is especially true for children and young people. If you have any concerns about a child's mental health or wellbeing we are here to help and if we cannot we will signpost you to those who can. If you think you may need help in any way please contact our DSL (Designated Safeguarding Lead : Miss Dewhurst) as soon as possible.
