Children's Mental Health

What does mental health mean?

Mental health is an individual's cognitive, behavioural and emotional wellbeing (Mind, 2020). It's something we all have - including every child and young person.

We use the term "mental health issues" to refer to mental health problems, conditions and mental illnesses. These issues may or may not be medically diagnosed.

(NSPCC 2020)

 

Families can access a wide range of information and support via the NSPCC's website.   Click on the link here for help with topics such as:

Our `Health and Wellbeing Champion' is Miss Laven.  Please contact her or any other member of staff if you would like to discuss concerns.  All staff are trained and experienced in dealing with a variety of health and well-being issues.  In addition, both Miss Laven and Mrs Pearson are Mental Health First Aiders.

 Exercise

The benefits of exercise on well-being are well documented.  

Staying physically active can have positive effects on mental health. It can reduce stress, anxiety and other mental health issues, and increase self-esteem (Mental Health Foundation, 2020; NHS, 2019).

At Seton School we encourage children to build physical activity into their daily routines, from talking a daily walk or run during our Daily Mile, to participating in sports activities at lunchtimes and to participating in extra-curricular sports activities and events.
