‘Mentally Healthy Schools’ is a free and easy to use website which features evidence-based practical resources to “improve awareness, knowledge and confidence in promoting and supporting pupils’ mental health”.
The website is a legacy project of the Heads Together mental health campaign which brings together The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry with charity partners including the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families, Place2be and Young Minds.
The website is currently tailored to the curriculum of primary schools in England but most resources will be universal and available later this term. The website features a wealth of information to help tackle stigma, raise awareness, and provide help for children and young people with mental health challenges, covering four main areas: teaching resources, risks and protective factors, mental health needs, and a ‘whole school approach’ for school leaders.
The website features a section on the key role of those governing which is available to access here.
