Mental Health Awareness

In the UK today, six children and young people (CYP) in every classroom have a diagnosable mental health problem, most of whom will not seek help for up to ten years. There is a growing awareness that earlier preventative support that focuses on building resilience and promoting well-being is necessary to meet our young people’s mental health needs.

We are proud to be a part of the myHappymind Family! 

As a whole school program grounded in science and dedicated to building positive mental wellbeing, myHappymind helps children understand how their brains work and creates a culture that helps to build children's resilience, confidence, and self-esteem. myHappymind also teaches the children how to self-regulate and manage their emotions in stressful times, allowing them to be their very best selves!
