We want to promote emotional wellbeing and mental health across our school.
There are four key principles driving the ideas and recommendations behind the award:
Emotional wellbeing and mental health are a continuum. Related issues can range from positive attitudes and behaviour, through to experiences of emotional distress and mental disorder.
Schools already experience and manage emotional issues on a daily basis; the objective is to minimise the impact of such issues and maximise the effectiveness of any responses.
Emotional wellbeing covers a range of dimensions, such as resilience, character building, relationships and self-esteem, etc. Understanding both developmental and mental health awareness is critical.
Creating a positive school culture requires a whole-school approach that is led from the top while involving all in the school community.
