How can we support your school community?
We work with a number of schools in Hertfordshire and offer a range of activities from assemblies, to mental health workshops, staff training and fundraising events.
We create positive early experiences with mental health services, creating a safe space to explore feelings, improve understanding and gain confidence in talking about mental health and emotions.
Here at Goffs-Churchgate we have an excellent working relationship with Herts Mind Network. Carys and her team continue to be incredibly supportive, hosting mental health and wellbeing workshops at the school as well as webinars. The team’s advice has enabled us to design our own Breakout Room for students as well as an online Digital Safe Area on our school website.
There are lots of ways that we can support local schools to promote the wellbeing of their students, such as:
Through attending information stalls at school events and parents’ evenings, we aim to reduce stigmas attached to mental health. We can provide information and advice, and help raise awareness of mental health and emotional wellbeing in line with the Whole School Approach within your setting.
We can arrange to provide an initial school assembly to raise awareness of mental health. This will promote positive mental health and wellbeing, help to reduce stigma around mental health and encourage positive discussions between peers.
We can also work alongside your school to identify whether it would be helpful to run mental health workshops within the school. These can be tailored to the needs of particular year groups, classes and local need.
Mental health and wellbeing workshops
We provide structured workshops for children and young people, staff and parents at primary and secondary schools. These focus on life skills, building resilience and promoting coping strategies which can help support students to maintain good mental health, whilst empowering them to also support others with their mental health and wellbeing.
