Children's Mental Health is everyone's business and education settings are best placed to be able to provide early support and raise awareness of mental health. As part of the National Trailblazer MHST's, Alliance have developed information, resources, workshops and programmes, co-produced with teaching staff and children, to help schools and colleges develop their whole school approach to mental health and well-being.
The Department for Education and Public Health England published the 'Promoting children and young people mental health and wellbeing - A Whole school or College approach' which highlights 8 principles which can be seen in the image.
Alliance Psychological services have created a secure platform for schools to access various resources, documents and support based on these principles to support your school setting. Within each section (linked to the principles) you will find relevant information.
Support from the MHST to review, improve and develop school wellbeing policies. We can provide example templates linked to best practice and examples from other educational settings.
As part of the MHST support from Alliance, we have a series of workshops and training that Mental Health Support Teams are able to access to ensure they have all of the knowledge required to enable them to excel in their role.
To support you in promoting the Mental Health Support Teams and how to access the service, we have provided a range of resources for you to use on all communication channels including posters, social media and the website.
Parents and Carers play a major role in the Whole School Approach and we have provided a range of interventions and resources for youto share with your school community.
