We have put together some useful links and sources of support for children, young people and school staff to access advice and help for mental health and wellbeing needs.
The list is not exhaustive, and many other useful organisations and services exist, but it is hoped that these will help schools navigate some key resources available.
Navigate is a brand new resource that builds emotional resilience and helps pupils and staff come to terms with life after lockdown. The resource consists of 6 x 1 hour sessions. Each session is facilitated by a series of bitesize videos, hosted by the Founders of Imagine For Schools. The videos run alongside teacher-led activities specifically designed and resourced for Navigate. Visit the Imagine for Schools website for more details.
Mentally Healthy Schools is a free website for primary schools, offering school staff information, advice and practical resources to better understand and promote pupils’ mental health and wellbeing. They are producing fortnightly toolkits to support school staff and parents during the COVID-19 pandemic. Visit the Mentally Healthy Schools website.
Advice for settings and families, with tools and free resources to support children’s wellbeing for schools, as well as resources for parents/carers.
