Family Support and Mental Health
We all have mental health just as we all have physical health.
What is Mental Health?
“Mental health is defined as a state of well-being 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, 2014)
At Chater Junior School we are passionate about providing our children with the lifelong emotional tools that will help them to deal with their Mental Health and Well-being. At Chater we have trained Mental Health first Aiders who deliver CPD to all staff members. Positive mental health learning features highly in all areas of our curriculum. We participate in national events such as Children’s Mental Health Week and mental health issues and coping strategies are discussed in assemblies.
Every year an information evening is held for parents which provides information about the NHS Five ways to Well being and how to support your children.
