Mental illness is often invisible, but that doesn’t mean it should be hidden. Statistics tell us that most people suffer from a mental health concern at some point in their lives and that one in ten young people struggle with their mental health. People with any illnesses, whether they affect our mental or physical health, deserve support, help and understanding.
Understanding and responding to our mental health and wellbeing needs is something we believe in at Headley Park. We aim to take away the stigma and negativity and help our families to talk openly.
Below you will find links to helpful advice, websites and contacts. If you would like to see anything added to this site, or to speak more about wellbeing and mental health, please talk to your child’s class teacher primarily. If continued support is needed for your child, Mrs Elson and Mr Inskip are both Primary Mental Health First Aiders and are happy to discuss any further concerns you may have.
