Mental Health and Well-being

 

Supporting children to ensure they have optimum health and well-being is extremely important to us at St Patrick's.

All staff at St Patrick's have received training which allows them to promote our childrens' mental health and well-being. In addition to this, we have 3 staff in school who are trained in Mental Health First Aid and we are very fortunate to have a counsellor who works in school once per week. 

In school, we frequently engage in activities to improve mindfulness, resilience and children's understanding of their own well-being. 

The Public Health Team in Cumbria provide some fantastic resources and information regarding a range of mental health issues on their website https://www.cumbria.gov.uk/ph5to19/mentalhealth.asp 

Some of their fact sheets can be seen below.
