Mental Health and Wellbeing

“Mental health is defined as a state of wellbeing in which every individual realises his or her own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to her or his community.”

World Health Organisation

 

At St. John’s, we are committed to supporting the emotional health and wellbeing of our pupils and staff. We know that everyone experiences life challenges that can make us vulnerable and at times, anyone may need additional emotional support. We take the view that positive mental health is everybody’s business and that we all have a role to play. 

 

We have three Mental Health First Aiders in school:  Mrs Helen Findlay, Mrs Suzanne Lister and Mrs Debra Brooke.

 

At our school we:

  • help children to understand their emotions and feelings better                            
  • help children feel comfortable sharing any concerns or worries
  • help children socially to form and maintain relationships
  • promote self-esteem and ensure children know that they count
  • encourage children to be confident and ‘dare to be different’
  • help children to develop emotional resilience and to manage setbacks
  • seek advice from external agencies such as Future in Mind, CAMHS and the Local Authority SEMH team
