Mental Health Awareness
Spreading Mental Health Awareness
This report is about embedding mental health into the culture of your education and youth setting, put together from young peoplewho’ve observed a variety of initiatives within their own settings and noted ways to meet best practice when spreading awareness and destigmatising children and young people’s mental health & emotional wellbeing (MHEW).
“By using this report and applying the practical tips, your school will be gaining invaluable insight into what gaps young people feel are in your mental health curriculum and how to address them through fundraising, teaching and support services. Considering your surrounding school culture will help you paint a more complete picture and provide improved, holistic support for the complexity of mental health.
I believe this is what makes the report unique - by identifying and addressing gaps teachers may not otherwise be aware of, it will help build bridges between teachers and students, creating a positive school culture in which young people feel understood and equipped with the knowledge and support they need to cope with their mental health challenges.” -Elsa, IAG Lead Member (18)
