Mental Health

At Seton School we are determined to promote and support our children's well-being and to help them to develop habits for a healthy lifestyle. 

Healthy bodies and healthy minds are crucial foundations for well-being.  Our curriculum includes regular opportunities to explore and learn about both.  We give children the vocabulary, the understanding and the confidence to recognise and respond to their own developing needs.  We ensure that all children know where they can access help from when they need it.

From time to time, children may benefit from additional support and we offer personalised sessions with highly experienced, trained staff.   This may include additional 1:1 sessions from our trained THRIVE practitioner, Mrs Pearson, or interventions arranged by Miss Laven or Mrs Pearson, who are both Mental Health First Aiders.  We have access to a wide range of support agencies and can quickly signpost families to these when needed.

If you would like any further information, please contact Miss Laven, who is our SENDCO and Mental Health First-Aider.

 

There are many external sources of support available to families:

CAMHS

CAMHS stands for Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services. CAMHS are the NHS services that assesses and treat young people with emotional, behavioural or mental health difficulties.

CAMHS support covers depression, problems with food, self-harm, abuse, violence or anger, bipolar, schizophrenia and anxiety, to name a few.

There are local NHS CAMHS services around the UK, with teams made up of nurses, therapists, psychologists, support workers and social workers, as well as other professionals.

Samaritans

Emotional health is about the way we think and feel, and the ability to manage our feelings and deal with difficulties. Having good emotional health is not the same thing as being happy all the time. Everyone experiences difficult feelings from time to time, and often we don’t know what to do to help us get back on track.

Anyone can contact Samaritans, no matter how old you are.
