Guidance for parents for using Mentally Healthy Schools resources
Learn how to use the resources on Mentally Healthy Schools with your child by following our simple guidance.
Some of our Mentally Healthy Schools resources are suitable to be used by parents, with the support of the school.
They may not be suitable for all children, so particular care should be taken for children who have experienced particularly difficult circumstances or emotions, for example those who have been through a life-changing experience (such as bereavement), may be experiencing severe mental health problems or may have a history of trauma. Please seek further support from your school and your GP, if you are concerned.
Activities that focus on emotions can increase our sense of awareness of our thoughts and feelings, so it is important to remind children of the support systems that are available, in and out of school, if they need to speak about something.
